IGNITE Stage: Integrated disaster risk: from research to practice

  • Time and Date: Tuesday 10 May (10:45 - 11:00)
  • Speaker(s): Jane Rovins,
    IRDR International Programme Office


Why, despite our increased knowledge and understanding of natural hazards, have losses associated with disasters risen at a seemingly exponential rate? The Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR) program looks to answer this question. The complexity of the task requires full integration of research expertise from natural, socio-economic, health, engineering sciences, coupled with socio-economic analysis, communications, public and political response to reduce risk. This presentation will discuss ways to make this happen.
