6th Global Summit of GADRI:

The prolonged worldwide pandemic and cascading risks have taught us that the conventional approach to disaster risk planning and management is ineffective for the development of sustainable and resilient communities. A worldwide pandemic underscores the importance of integrating the following key areas: -
Towards a sustainable and resilient society, the GADRI's five-fold objectives, which include establishing global research networks, developing research roadmaps and plans, building the capacities of research institutes, sharing information and engaging in collaborative research, and advocating for organizations, need to be directed toward the above-mentioned three key areas for integration in research and development.
The 6th GADRI Global Summit aims to systematically identify the processes, techniques, evidence, challenges and opportunities for achieving the GADRI objectives for a sustainable and resilient society against hazards and working to keep them from becoming disasters. Program participants will communicate academic science across scientific disciplines to policymakers and practitioners.
