The FORIN project: understanding the causes of disasters

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

This report presents three different case studies on disaster risk identification. Each of the case studies presents root causes of risk and risk drivers that lead to the construction of risk. Within these case studies from Taiwan, the Philippines and the United States, the relevant policy findings are highlighted.

Besides offering strong case studies, the report also underlines the importance of understanding the deeply rooted and historical processes, termed root causes, that lead to disaster risk by influencing the ways dynamic processes or risk drivers develop, such as demographic change, poverty and inequality, weak governance structures, inadequate risk policies, poorly managed development, risk perceptions and culture, declining environmental health, conflict, and climate change and variability.
