|Full Project Title:||Management of Disaster Risk and Societal Resilience|
|Full Call Title:||DR32019|
|Project Objective:||We propose to address four issues for operationalizing the Management of Disaster Risk and Societal Resilience (MADIS).
1) Ambiguity in relationship between hazards, vulnerability, and resilience.
2) The representation of institutional, infrastructural, societal dimensions in drought risk analysis has been limited.
3) Links between drought indicators and impacts are poorly represented.
4) Disaster management tools aren't assessed through socio-technical systems view.r
|Call Objective:||The Disaster Risk, Reduction and Resilience (DR3) call responds to the growing need for assessment and reduction of disaster risk, collaborative co-design of resilience strategies with a breadth of stakeholders, and scientifically and technologically enhanced responses to disasters. In the context of this call, disasters are framed as extreme environmental events that negatively impact coupled human-natural systems. The generation of these events may have natural and/or anthropogenic causes.|
