Guide to assessing integrated research on disaster risk

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

Assessment of Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (AIRDR) Project Report No. 1

This guide provides a step-by-step procedure for conducting systematic reviews on disaster risk. It documents the methodology used in risk assessments as a means for sharing and encouraging locally-based assessments using a common protocol.

It explains what is currently known within the research community about the terms of capacity, technology, tools, methodologies, and translation, what is less well-known in the research and where do these shortcomings come from, how our existing scientific knowledge can help us to understand disaster risk under conditions where disasters may be increasing in frequency and intensity and where vulnerability and exposure heighten the impacts of disasters.

The guide was developed to facilitate a broader and more inclusive review of integrated research on disaster risk. The idea is to promote systematic reviews of local and regional research contributions in other publication outlets and in native languages that, when viewed collectively, produce a global synthesis.
