Kick-off Meeting
Re-ENERGIZE

20 Apr 2020

Re-Energize DR3 is funded part of the Collaborative Research Action on Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience (DR3) through the Belmont Forum, with funding from four agencies: UKRI, QNRF, JST, NSF

Re-Energize will use nexus-informed methodological approach combined artificial intelligence, machine learning and natural language processing.

This research advances approaches for governance by accounting for complex thinking. This will be done by combining quantitative and qualitative scientific methods to enable equitable disaster risk reduction and resilience in development planning and programmes.

Developing response processes that integrate a normative institutional approach will support the legitimacy of any given intervention of policies intended to enhance the resilience of communities and enhance societal coping capabilities. We emphasize the importance of community involvement in disaster risk management planning and the role of legal principles and institutions in reducing asymmetries in knowledge and power within a society.

In conditions of post-normal science, where facts and indicators are uncertain and values are disputed, there is need for a normative-institutional approach involving diverse stakeholders and the ponderation of legal principles.

Within an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research agenda we plan to contribute evidence to governments' plans for disaster risk reduction and resilience and enable equitable disaster risk reduction and resilience in development planning and development programmes.

Stay tuned for more updates!
