Since 2009 the Disasters Research Group has been convening informally to enhance research and technology-based disaster risk reduction (DRR) through improved through improved coordination of UK and international funders, research providers and users.

Among its main highlights, the DRG was credited as one of the bodies seen to strongly support the inclusion of science and technology solutions in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the latest global framework to strengthen disaster resilience.

To mark 10 years of collaboration, we have compiled a compendium of the group’s collective achievements and the work of each of its members on  international disaster reduction initiatives.
