  1. 1. Global Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes (GADRI): Discussion Session Prof. Andrew Collins Northumbria University 30th August, 2016 andrew.collins@northumbria.ac.uk
  2. 2. Some Underlying Principles Driving GADRI (1) • Disaster Risk Reduction and Disaster Resilience is an interdisciplinary domain with unknown parameters and ever increasing additional research needs. • DRR research and development need to be effectively applied - institutional collectives generate the moral, political and technical support to do so. • Progress in research should inform positions of power and this generates opportunities for impact on disaster risk reduction and disaster resilience. 2
  3. 3. Some Underlying Principles Driving GADRI (2) An alliance of institutions: • Offers cooperative (as opposed to competitive) working between and beyond its members • Facilitates a framework to guide new researchers in an expanding field • Maintains DRR institutional memory, to enable maximisation of previous effort. 3
  4. 4. Question Prompts – how you see it • What are some of the issues likely to face a global alliance in this field? • What are the solutions that can be facilitated by a Global Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes? • What ways would you like to collaborate with GADRI?
