Call for Nominations: IRDR Scientific Committee


The IRDR programme is now accepting nominations for new members of the IRDR Scientific Committee. Members of the IRDR SC play an important part in planning, developing and promoting IRDR, and membership can bring benefits to your organisation by enhancing partnerships and exploring potential co-operation.

Candidates’ research areas should be closely related to the challenges of natural and human-induced hazards, capacity building, development of case studies, data management and monitoring hazards, risks and disasters. Based on the composition of the current Committee, we expect the applicants to be economists, seismologists, volcanologists, meteorologists, and disaster risk managers. Other hazard and disaster specialties are welcome. Women experts are encouraged to apply.
