Risk Assessment Users Group

The Risk Assessment Users Group was meeting over the telephone the first Wednesday of every month, from 10:30 to 11:30 am Pacific Time, to support your risk assessment activity and research. Meetings are presently on hold as the group looks for new leadership. The group is unchartered and consists of a loose affiliation of people interested in hazard risk assessment for disaster reduction.

The RAUG was facilitated by the Quantitative Risk Assessment Project of Natural Resources Canada's Program for Public Safety Geoscience from January 2010 to June 2014. For information email Bert Struik, emeritus scientist with Geological Survey of Canada, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
