General information and objectives

Research objectives:
  • Characterization of hazards, vulnerability and risk
  • Understanding decision-making in complex and changing risk contexts
  • Reducing risk and curbing losses through knowledge-based actions

    The three research objectives will, when projects make successful contributions to them, lead to understanding of hazards and vulnerability and risk and enhanced capacity to model and project risk into the future; to the understanding of the decision-making choices that lead to risk and how they may be influenced; and how this knowledge can better lead to disaster risk reduction. Over the coming years, in planning and developing the partnerships with other organizations, it may be necessary to revisit these objectives. Some of the existing programmes (see Appendix III) that may become components or affiliates of IRDR, have narrower and some broader sets of objectives; they have varying degrees of inclusion across disciplines and regions of the globe.
