The United Nations International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction is held every year on October 13. The day celebrates how people and communities around the world are reducing their exposure to disasters and raising awareness about the importance of risk mitigation.
Our Institute’s vision for Disaster Solutions is to develop unique and transformational solutions to prevent disasters, bringing together the combined expertise of world-leading ANU researchers in partnership with stakeholders, and leaving nothing to chance.
ANU researchers are uniquely placed to respond to these complex challenges. Some of our activities will include breakthrough research for disaster prediction, prevention and response, short courses, policy roundtables and engagement, fact sheets and data provision, visioning exercises and priority setting.
If you would like to know more about our research and work in disaster solutions at ANU, please contact Dr Roslyn Prinsley, Head of Disaster Solutions, Institute for Climate, Energy & Disaster Solutions or Senior Project Officer (Disaster Solutions), Carla Alzamora.
We hope that you find valuable the highlights below on recent ANU research and endeavours in disaster risk reduction and resilience.
