Online Survey for the Development of a Global Science Agenda on RiskThe emerging global risk landscape of a varying pandemic, climate change, social and financial crises, inequalities and vulnerabilities, pose new challenges for disaster risk reduction (DRR). The trend is for more severe and complex risks with cascading and systemic impacts. Rapid political, social and technological developments in addition to climate change are also contributing to this shifting risk landscape. The International Science Council (ISC) and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) have set up a process to develop a global Agenda for risk science, that is informed and shaped by several perspectives, uses and value add, to guide international research, scientific collaboration and funding to strengthen the impact of science on risk management and risk reduction. The Agenda will also inform the next phase of the Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR) program set up in 2010 for an initial implementation period of 10 years. The survey aims to collect feedback and inputs on the Draft Science Agenda. It is therefore essential that survey respondents read the draft before answering the questions. The survey is composed of 10 open questions and you will need 15-20 minutes to fill it in.
