International Centres of Excellence (ICoE)
IRDR International Centres of Excellence (ICoEs), established through the IRDR Scientific Committee (SC) and the relevant National Committee (NC), will provide regional and research foci for the IRDR programme. ICoE research programmes will embody an integrated approach to disaster risk reduction that directly contributes to the ICSU/IRDR Science Plan for Integrated Research on Disaster Risk and its objectives, as well as the IRDR Strategic Plan (2013-2017) .
ICoE and IRDR projects will collaborate to provide global contributions towards achieving the IRDR legacy. In particular, each established ICoE will enable regional scientific activities through geographically-focused contributions based on more localised inputs, and by being visible centres of research to motivate participation in the IRDR programme.
Please review the Terms of Reference governing NCs within the IRDR programme. If you have any questions send us an email at connect@irdrinternational.org .
