Who We Are
Now in its eleventh year, Crisis Response Journal, along with its associated products, is a global information resource that covers all aspects of human-induced natural disasters, spanning response, disaster risk reduction, resilience, business continuity and security.
The aim is to bring agencies, disciplines and nations – as well as the private and public sectors – together in order to increase the understanding of their different roles and perspectives, thereby improving a unified response to large scale crises, or averting crises in the first place through effective disaster risk reduction.
We cover a range of threats, from CBRN and cybercrime to conventional terrorism, from pandemic protection and preparedness to flooding, from fires and chemical incidents, to large scale natural emergencies such as earthquakes, from environmental degradation to climate issues, from critical infrastructure protection to business and national continuity, security, resilience and sustainability.
CRJ analyses past events to draw vital lessons for the future, while constantly scanning the horizon to identify and help mitigate new threats. It provides a much-needed professional global platform to exchange news, experience, and in-depth analysis of major incidents, as well as publishing cutting-edge thought leadership pieces and commentaries.
We distil and share global research, knowledge and experience on disaster risk reduction, crisis management, resilience and continuity. The aim is to protect lives, livelihoods and quality of life, to preserve the environment and to safeguard economies.
Our global readership comprises senior officers and strategists from: Local and national governments; front-line emergency response and civil protection organisations; major international institutions; non governmental organisations; emergency planners & responders; academic and training institutions, critical infrastructure security and emergency response experts (ie ports, airports, refineries, energy and water installations); along with a range of other actors in the prevention, response, resilience and continuity fields.
