North American Alliance of Hazards and Disaster Research Institutes

June 5, 2020

The Hazards & Vulnerability Research Institute (HVRI) is a founding member of the North American Alliance of Hazards and Disaster Research Institutes (NAAHDRI) designed to foster collaboration among the leaders of hazards and disaster research centers and institutes. Our goal is to advance research, education, training, advocacy, and action to reduce harm and suffering from a wide range of extreme events ranging from natural hazards, to pandemics, to terrorism. We are now confronting perhaps the slowest and most deadly disaster ever, deeply embedded systemic racism.  See the NAAHDRI statement on systemic racism and disasters here
