Mission

The Avoidable Deaths Network (ADN) is a diverse, dynamic, inclusive and innovative global membership network dedicated to avoiding human deaths from natural hazards, naturally triggered technological hazards and human-made disasters in low- and middle-income countries.

The ADN is led by the Universities of Leicester and Kansai, in collaboration with Chittagong University, Delhi University, the University of the West Indies, Right Insights, International Planned Parenthood Federation, UNDP-Nairobi, Orissa State Volunteers and Social Workers Association, Albida International LLC, Equal Asia Foundation, MARS Practitioners Network and the All India Disaster Management Institute.

The network seeks to provide a dynamic forum for experts, practitioners, researchers and organisational partners to identify and promote theoretical and practical solutions to reducing ‘avoidable deaths’.

The ADN was founded by Dr. Nibedita S. Ray-Bennett (Associate Professor in Risk Management, University of Leicester) and Dr. Hideyuki Shiroshita (Associate Professor in Disaster Education, Kansai University) in 2018. The network is inspired by Dr. Ray-Bennett’s research monograph on Avoidable Deaths: A Soft-Systems Approach to Disaster Risk Management (Springer Nature, 2017). Dr. Ray-Bennett and Dr. Shiroshita met at Northumbria University’s Disaster and Development Centre in 2007. Since then, they have collaborated on a number of research projects.
