Integrating Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) for transformative change: Addressing multi-hazard vulnerability in the context of risk-informed development


Disaster risk weakens climate adaptation. This PhD will explore the DDR-CCA nexus by assessing the vulnerability of adaptation assets to multi-hazards; and examining the transformative potential of risk-informed development.

Science for Disaster Risk Reduction: What's not working?


There is no sustainable development without Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) but progress towards international DRR objectives has been slow. This research is a critical analysis of science integration in decision making from international policy to local implementation.

The deadline for applications is 4 January 2024 at 12:00.
