During the Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR) Conference 2011, which was held from the 31st of October to 2nd of November in Beijing, China, the methodology template on Forensic Investigations of Disasters (FORIN) was launched. IRDR’s executive director, Dr. Jane E. Rovins was interviewed by the Science and Development Network, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing reliable and authoritative information about science and technology. Rovins said that the plan is to apply FORIN to a variety of disasters around the world.

“We are reaching out to partners to use the template and provide feedback. Once we have this information we will be able to create the case studies that others can learn from and utilize to better protect their communities from similar events.”
