Universe of Threats – Natural Disaster Threat Contest
(open Dec. 1, 2023 – Jan. 31, 2024 – Link to Apply will be posted Dec. 1)
The Center for Advanced Preparedness and Threat Response Simulation (CAPTRS) is building a catalog of threats, called the “Universe of Threats,” which will be used to prepare decision makers for future threats. Our third essay contest to add to the Universe of Threats will focus on natural disaster threats.
We invite you to submit your story and a one page ground truth document (see examples below) describing a threat scenario related to natural disasters, including floods, wildfires, hurricanes or another natural disaster of your choosing. Judges will be looking for unique but plausible threat scenarios, as well as clearly defined and complex cascading impacts of the threat.
