6th Global Summit of GADRI:

Towards GADRI Objectives of Achieving a Sustainable Disaster-Resilient World

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: -

  1. Disaster risk should not be treated in isolation but should be integrated with health risks, climate change, and environmental risks;
  2. DRR objectives and vision should be integrated with sustainable development goals to foster a resilient world;
  3. Short-term DRR objectives need to be integrated with a long-term vision and plans for a resilient society.

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.


Panel Group Discussion Session I:

  1. GADRI Objective - I (global research network) for Sustainable and Resilient Society Against Disasters (SRSAD)
  2. GADRI Objective - II (developing research roadmaps and plans) for SRSAD
  3. GADRI Objective - III (building the capacities of research institutes) for SRSAD
  4. GADRI Objective - IV (mutual sharing information and engaging in collaborative research) for SRSAD
  5. GADRI Objective - V (serve as an advocacy organization ) for SRSAD

(Note: Panel Group Discussion Session I will identify the gaps, discuss what we can do/what should be done and suggest recommendations towards realizing GADRI objectives)
