The UBC Disaster Resilience Research Network (DRRN) is working to build transdisciplinary connections and identify shared research goals to inform disaster risk reduction policy and decision making at community and governance levels.

The network aims to advance multi-hazard assessment and mitigation in support of an inclusive and equitable development of just disaster risk management, with a focus on BC informed by international perspectives.

Membership in DRRN is open to faculty, post-docs, graduate students, researchers, and practitioners from the Cascadia region who are interested in transdisciplinary disaster research. Members from any discipline are welcome, and network members represent fields as diverse as Anthropology, Civil Engineering, Earth Sciences, Environmental Studies, Forestry, Geography, Law, Planning, and Public Health.
