Yesterday, our paper addressing how disaster risk in conflict areas can be reduced to meet United Nations Sendai Framework disaster risk reduction priorities was presented at Conflict Research Society’s annual conference.
The conference’s theme this year is to address issues related to polarization along with healing the divides and seizing opportunities in conflict research and practice.
Co-authors and colleagues Aaron Clark-Ginsberg & Bernard McCaul, on behalf of a collaboration among researchers and practitioners at RAND Corporation, GOAL Global, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Harvard University, University of Sydney, Oregon State University, & UCL, gave the conference participants an engaging and compelling presentation on how we can deliver this promise of reducing disaster risk in conflict areas through a case study of GOAL Global’s work in northwest Syria.
