Advancing Disaster and Conflict Risk Reduction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Enabling human survivability and improving quality of life for future generations requires reducing the risk of conflicts, destitution and environmental crises. A more integrated Disaster and Conflict Risk Reduction (DCRR) framework provides conceptual advances for better understanding, assessment, management and governance of risk and sustainability. This synthesis for sustainability and peace emphasises early warning, rights based and resilience perspectives that build cross-cutting theoretical, policy and practice imperatives in advancing DCRR. Derived DCRR systematics include (i) building up earlier human well-being that offsets negative risk, (ii) living better with uncertainty and (iii) overcoming political, behavioural and technical barriers in disaster and conflict risk transitioning.
