Understanding the Cascading Impacts of Disasters Webinar, Nov 15

The next CDRN Seminar, Understanding the Cascading Impacts of Disasters, will be held next Tuesday 8 November at 15:00 (UK Time).

Seminar Abstract:

Disasters can lead to fatalities, property destruction and environmental damage. While media and government agencies report these immediate impacts of disasters, uncertainty can exist regarding these direct consequences.

Disasters also contribute to cascading impacts which can be even more uncertain and difficult to assess. This seminar will explore existing research that can help to develop a more holistic understanding of the cascading impacts of disasters.

The speakers for the seminar are:

  • Dr. Gianluca Pescaroli (UCL IRDR), Dr. Lauryn Spearing (University of Illinois
  • Chicago), and Dr. Radley Horton (Columbia University)
