About this book

This book presents selected papers from the 3rd Global Summit of Research Institutes for Disaster Risk Reduction – Expanding the Platform for Bridging Science and Policy Making, which was held at the Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University, Uji Campus from 19 to 21 March 2017. It was organised by the Global Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes (GADRI), which was established soon after the second Global Summit and the UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in March 2015, and is intended to support the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030.
The conference not only provided a platform for discussion and exchange of information on key current and future research projects on disaster risk reduction and management, but also promoted active dialogues through group discussion sessions that addressed various disaster research disciplines.
In this book, authors from various disciplines working at governmental and international organisations provide guidance to the science and technical community, discuss the current challenges, and evaluate the research needs and gaps in the context of climate change, sustainable development goals and other interlinked global disaster situations. Expert opinions from practitioners and researchers provide valuable insights into how to connect and engage in collaborative research with the international science and technical communities and other stakeholders to achieve the goals set out in the agenda of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030. In addition, case studies and other evidence-based research papers highlight ongoing research projects and reflect the challenges encountered in information sharing by various stakeholders in the context of disaster risk reduction and management.

About the authors

Prof. Hirokazu Tatano is the Research Division Head of Disaster Management for Safe and Secure Society, the Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University. In addition to his responsibilities as a Professor at the DPRI, he has served as Vice President of the International Society of Integrated Disaster Risk Management (IDRiM Society) since 2010, and as Secretary General of the Global Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes (GADRI) since 2015. He has pursued pioneering research on economic consequence analysis with a major focus on economic resilience to natural disasters at the levels of individual businesses, markets, and regional economies. Another research focus is on methodologies for integrated disaster risk management and governance. Through these academic activities, he hopes to help establish “implementation science” as a key area of science for disaster risk reduction.
Prof. Andrew Collins is a leader of the Disaster and Development Network and a Professor of Disaster and Development, Department of Geography, Northumbria University, UK. Beyond his research, local teaching and management responsibilities, he represents disaster, development and health-related initiatives internationally. He led the establishment of the world’s first disaster management and sustainable development postgraduate programme, launched in 2000, and the Disaster and Development Network (DDN), launched in 2004. Prior to his academic appointments, Andrew also worked internationally, including three years of voluntary support to communities in wartime Mozambique. He is currently engaged in high-level policy and advisory work, serves on the reviewing and commissioning boards for national and international organisations and multiple journals, and is involved with 13 research funding bodies.
