Our research is designed to make a significant difference to the ways in which residents, government, and the international community take decisions to manage multi-hazards and system risks. We are:

  1. Thinking critically about the social, political, economic, and environmental context within which disasters occur in Nepal
  2. Establishing a new approach to national- and provincial-scale planning for complex multi-hazard events, including those triggered by earthquakes and monsoons
  3. Developing interdisciplinary science to anticipate and communicate the range of hazards that occur during the annual monsoon; and
  4. Find the best ways to utilise local knowledge and interdisciplinary science to inform how to prepare for and respond to multi-hazard disasters
