Survey: 30 innovations used in disaster risk reduction: Products and approaches

Source(s):  Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR)

The impacts and damages caused by natural hazards are still enormous.

While various disaster risk reduction (DRR) measures have been implemented for many years, the application of science, technology and innovations are required more than ever to develop and further apply effective and evidence-based approaches.

The APRU (Association of Pacific Rim Universities) Multi-Hazards Program organized a strategic meeting on the disaster risk reduction policy influence at Tohoku University in February 2018 with the APRU member universities and partner organizations. At the meeting, it was suggested to identify innovations that produced tremendous changes and made contributions to reducing damage to raise awareness on highly effective DRR measures, especially among policy makers and practitioners. In collaboration with Keio University, the University of Tokyo, the United Nations University (UNU), the Church World Service (CWS) and the International Research Institute of Disaster Science (IRIDeS) of Tohoku University, 30 DRR innovations were identified.

This survey aims to identify the DRR innovations whose implementation you would like to promote most widely out of the 30. The survey also aims to look into additional DRR innovations for further research.

The result of this survey will be included in a publication on the 30 innovations to be issued early 2019 and will be made available on the APRU Multi-hazards program website.

This online survey will be closed on 20 January, 2019.
