The Hazard Reduction and Recovery Center (HRRC) studies hazards and how they affect the natural and built environments and the people who live there. With a special focus on hazard mitigation and recovery, we generate research at the forefront of hazard planning.
Texas A&M University's Hazard Reduction and Recovery Center (HRRC) is an interdisciplinary research effort. Established in 1988, the HRRC was the first research center dedicated to vulnerability reduction and long-term recovery in the nation.
Today, we are one of only two United Nations (UN-OCHA) Collaborative Centers in the world. We serve OCHA as a research and consultant agency with particular emphasis on national disaster plans and their implications for future development.
