Webinar of the Pandemic and Disaster Preparedness Center (PDPC)

11 February 2022 11:01 | Add to my calendar

The second webinar of the Pandemic and Disaster Preparedness Center (PDPC) is about the lessons learned during this pandemic and what they teach us about better water disaster preparedness. But also the other way around: What does water management teach us about structural preparedness for pandemics? And how vulnerable is our health care system during a crisis?
