The impacts and damages caused by natural hazards are still enormous.
While various disaster risk reduction (DRR) measures have been taken for many years, the application of science, technology and innovations are required more than ever to develop and implement further effective and evidence-based approach.

The APRU (Association of Pacific Rim Universities) Multi-Hazards Program organized a strategic meeting on the disaster risk reduction policy influence at Tohoku University in February 2018 with the APRU member universities and partner organizations. At the meeting, it was suggested to identify innovations that produced tremendous changes and made contributions to reducing damage to raise awareness on highly effective DRR measures especially among policy makers and practitioners. In collaboration with Keio University, University of Tokyo, United Nations University (UNU),  Church World Service (CWS) and International Research Institute of Disaster Science (IRIDeS) of Tohoku University, 30 DRR innovations were identified.
This survey aims to identify the DRR innovations that you would like to promote its application most widely out of the 30 innovations and look into additional DRR innovations for further research.

The result of this survey will be included in a publication on the 30 innovations to be issued early 2019 and will be made available on the APRU Multi-hazards program website (http://aprumh.irides.tohoku.ac.jp/)
