We’re proud of the work we do at DRR Dynamics and want to share our successes with you. You’ll see a few examples of the types of projects we’ve worked on below. If you have any questions or would like to find out more about any of the projects detailed below, please contact us here
Examining the role of gender and perception of flood risk in the UK
This short project explored how risk perception can differ based on gender. Focused on the 2007 UK floods this project identified how men and women view risk differently and what emergency planners and authorities can do to mitigate those differences in flood risk planning.
Communicating with marginalised groups in a disaster
This project explored the area of emergency communication. Specifically, it focused on how marginalised groups (those with disabilities, older people and LGBTI groups) are often forgotten in emergency communication strategies. In identifying those failings we were able to develop guidelines to ensure communication during a disaster situation is more inclusive.
UNISDR Words into Action for National Disaster Risk Assessments (NDRA)
DRR Dynamics was awarded the lead authorship on a chapter of the Words into Action National Disaster Risk Assessment booklet relating to the inclusion of marginalised groups. The chapter focused on concrete steps and actions DRR and DRM professionals can take to ensure an inclusive NDRA strategy and ensure those traditionally left of NDRA planning were included. The full review, including our chapter, can be found here
We are currently working on a number of exciting projects, details of which will be shared here soon.
