About this blog

This is the blog of the UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction, where we will keep you updated about IRDR events, IRDR funded travel, and other news and interesting developments from our research institute. In addition, we will use this blog to provide informative and insightful commentary from IRDR staff and guest writers.

The IRDR is a research institute at UCL bringing together more than 100 researchers across 12 different departments and seven faculties, along with humanitarian organisations and policy makers, all working together towards improved global risk and disaster reduction.
