Mission
IRDR’s mission is to mobilize science for the reduction of all types of disaster risk; building resilience and reducing vulnerability by integrating risk science with climate change adaptation and mitigation and sustainable development. IRDR aims to usher in an inclusive, safe and sustainable world by promoting a better understanding of disaster risk and the effective use of risk science in decision-making.
Research Objectives
1. improve knowledge and understanding of risk and uncertainty that hamper progress toward inclusive, safe and sustainable development; 2. promote innovation in research and action, and explore effective solutions in DRR; and 3. build institutional capacity required under various socio-economic and cultural settings and development contexts for risk-informed sustainable development.
Governance
IRDR is oversighted by its Co-Sponsors, Donor and Host. The IRDR Scientific Committee (SC) provides overall guidance on the development and the implementation of IRDR Action Plans. IRDR IPO serves as the Secretariat of IRDR.
Community
Scientific Committee (SC), National Committees (NCs), International Centres of Excellence (ICoEs), Young Scientists Programme (YSP), in partnership with global DRR stakeholders
