Integrated Research on Disaster Risk: Bridging Research, Policy, and Practice

Mon. 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Centennial E

Integrated Research on Disaster Risk was developed to address research gaps, silos, and policy voids with a trans-disciplinary, global approach. Four initiatives—Assessment of Integrated Research on Disaster Risk, Disaster Losses Data, Forensic Investigations of Disasters, and Risk Interpretation and Action—address different aspects of disaster risk research. This session will explore how these initiatives and IRDR provide valuable inputs for the scientific community to explore natural hazards and disasters of all sizes.
