Organisers of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) Multi-Hazards Program, in collaboration with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), is calling for research papers and case studies of ‘non-events’ to share global success and investment in disaster risk reduction (DRR).
Based on the Sendai Framework for DRR, investing in DRR for resilience is one of the four urgent concerns that need to be addressed. Funding agencies in both philanthropy and government need comprehensive success measures to make informed and trusted funding decisions. By sharing evidence-based ‘non-event’ case successes, decision-makers will be cognisant as to how to invest in disaster prevention policy.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is July 30, 2019. The top two papers will be announced at the 2020 Asia Pacific Science and Technology Conference for Disaster Risk Reduction in Kuala Lumpur on March 16-17, 2020.
