Moving from 2015 to 2030

Challenges and opportunities for higher education in developing resilience to disasters

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In recent years, the higher education community has played an increasingly important role in moving disaster science from a responsive, primarily technical discipline, to a broad, multi-disciplinary movement that seeks to build societal resilience to disaster. This study sets out some of the key challenges and op-portunities for higher education towards tackling the challenges set out in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015 - 2030, which was adopted by 187 UN member states in March 2015.
The study brings together existing literature in the field, as well as the results of various analysis and study projects undertaken by a European network project.
Five key areas of focus are identified in working towards 2030: Link research, education and action; Integrate all hazards, stakeholders and disciplines; Collaborate regionally and globally; Facilitate policy dialogue, knowledge sharing and capacity development; Develop flexible and customisable education programmes.
