Reducing risk of future disasters: priorities for decision makers

Foresight project looking at how science can reduce the impacts of natural disasters.



This report considers disasters resulting from natural hazards. It provides advice to decision makers on how science can inform the difficult choices and priorities in disaster risk reduction (DRR), so that the impacts of future disasters can be reduced. It looks at the present and future potential of science to enhance DRR and identifies implications for decision makers up to 2040.

Further details of the project and the supporting evidence are available from the project page.
