- The International CAtastrophic Risks Forum is the main
European catastrophic risks event.
The 5th Edition of the Forum took place on October 14th, 2008
at the Parliament Palace in Bucharest. This year, discussions
were focused on managing agricultural catastrophic risks, while
at the previous four editions the main topic was the creation
of a Romanian cat pool.
ICAR 2008 provided attendees with on open-discussion platform

a tool for developing Romania's agriculture.
Therefore, the events' findings - and thus the main solutions for amending the current local legislation - were sent in the
form of an official paper, to the main European and Romanian
public institutions: Presidency, Parliament, Government, Ministries,
The World Bank, to relevant farmers' professional associations,
NGOs and mass-media.
