Disaster risk management and resilience

Cities need to be developed (and redeveloped) so that as a system they can prepare for, withstand, and adapt to, the impacts of a broad range of hazards and threats. WEDC has over 10 years of experience in research related to how disaster risk management can be more effectively incorporated into urban development decisions so that cities, the supporting infrastructure and the people that live and work in those cities can increase their resilience
