Disasters research is ever more salient today. Weather related incidents fueled by climate change have filled the news for years while the Covid-19 pandemic has overshadowed everything else during the past year and a half. The Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report highlights the need for immediate global attention and that radical societal transformation is required in the coming years to limit dangerous climate change. Global disasters, both present and future, have become part of common understanding and the public debate. What is the best response to the contagion of a novel virus? How can the next pandemic be avoided? Is it feasible to halt global warming? And how can we become resilient to more extreme weather events? These are all questions that are fundament to academic disaster studies, but can now be read in the newspapers or heard on the news almost on a daily basis. These questions can only be answered with an inter-disciplinary lens.
