Abstract: After two intense years of collaboration with more than 300 experts in disaster risk management, we celebrate the International DRR day releasing a brief summary of the work done by the teams of authors for the Report Science for DRM 2020: acting today protecting tomorrow. The Report aims to broaden the knowledge of disaster risk in Europe, by collecting and merging the scientific results and experience of several actors. The Report is divided in six chapters and six super case studies, drafted by 25 teams of authors, with the support of an Advisory Group. All the contributions have been revised internally and externally, by a group of independent reviewers. The Science for DRM 2020 focuses on analysing the consequences of a disaster on various assets (population, economic sector, critical infrastructures, environment and cultural heritage) to take advantage of the data and lessons that can be extracted in the aftermath of an event to propose paths of action to reinforce prevention, mitigation and adaptation. Before its full publication, the current preview shares some of the ideas that will be contained in the full Report that will be public in December 2020.
