The state of knowledge on disaster risk

As part of the development process for a global research agenda for risk-informed development, this paper provides context, baseline information and a ‘state of knowledge’ on disaster risk science. Recognizing the knowledge and impact of existing networks and programmes, the Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR) programme seeks to establish a new research agenda to guide the development of disaster science in the coming decade. In the face of growing risks, the agenda will facilitate inter- and trans-disciplinary knowledge production, and contribute to the transition to a peaceful, safe, equitable and sustainable world within the context of DRR.
