This journal focuses on the environment and disaster related issues in the Asian region. It provides a forum to communicate research findings, not only through academic research, but also incorporating field based action research. It aims to establish academic linkages of field practices with specific emphasis on environment and disaster management in the Asian context. It covers a wide spectrum of environment and disaster risk reduction and management: (i) disaster risk reduction; (i) environmental practices; (i) community based environment and disaster management; (i) climate change adaptation; (i) urban risk; (i) policy framework of environment and disaster management; (i) disaster-development-environment inter linkage; (i) human security; (i) environment disaster education, risk communication; (i) project management in environment and disaster risk reduction; (i) post disaster recovery issues; and (i) coastal zone management.

The journal has wider authors and readers, which includes the research and academic community, non-government organizations, policy makers and international organizations. Thus, it encourages the field practitioners and managers to share their thoughts and experiences and to interact with the academic community so as to fill the gap of research, education and implementation.
