IDRiM2021 will celebrate 12 years since the official establishment of the International Society for Integrated Disaster Risk Management(IDRiM) in 2009, and 20 years since our founding members first discussed integrated disaster risk management at the first IIASADPRI Annual Forum on Integrated Disaster Risk Management in 2001. In this light, IDRiM2021 takes on a special meaning as we look back at two decades of applied and theoretical research on IDRiM.

Thus, we may ask, how has IDRiM contributed to disaster risk reduction(DRR)? Should IDRIM play a more prominent role in global platforms on DRR, development, and climate change adaptation? Can IDRiM promote implementation science through ideas such as the case-station field campuses (CASiFiCA) and other initiatives? Can IDRiM play a stronger role in bridging the gap between local, national, and international multi-stakeholder discussions on DRR? How “integrated” have our efforts been? Do we need to expand our views? How can advances from other disciplinary fields and initiatives that have not been traditionally included in the DRR discourse (e.g. sustainable futures, conscious businesses and new economics paradigms, green construction, life cycle assessment and planning, environmental protection including reducing consumption and waste, simple living, green cities, disaster history, anthropology, and cultural studies, and many more) contribute to DRR and vice versa?

IDRiM2021 will look at the above topics as well as presentations addressing issues related to : 

  • Understanding hazards and risks 
  • Managing risks 
  • Sustainable development 
  • Addressing interconnections, chain effects/cascading events 
  • Globalization and ripple effects of disasters 
  • Addressing issues related to aging and shrinking populations 
  • Promoting intergenerational discussion and collaboration 
  • Implementation science
  • Resilience and sustainability 
  • Disaster education 
  • Population and development in Asia and Africa 
  • Human behavior, risk perception, and DRR 
  • Technological hazards triggered by natural hazards 
  • Disaster risk governance 
  • Systemic risks 
  • Pandemics / Covid-19
