Mission

Lund University was founded in 1666 and has during its around 350 years of research, education and innovation evolved to one of the largest and strongest full research universities in Northern Europe. Lund University has today around 47 000 students and is consistently ranked among the top one hundred universities in the world. Although there was a university college in Lund already in 1438, Lund University was established after the peace treaty that seceded the provinces in what is now southern Sweden from Denmark.

Policies and Programmes in DRR

The university has its Lund University International Master's Programme in Environmental Studies and Sustainability Science (LUMES), which includes Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation.
