Event description

Description

For this HCRI Speaker Series we will be joined by Dr Ilan Kelman. Ilan Kelman http://www.ilankelman.org and Twitter @IlanKelman is a Reader in Risk, Resilience and Global Health at University College London, England and a researcher at the University of Agder, Kristiansand, Norway. His overall research interest is linking disasters and health, including the integration of climate change into disaster research and health research. That covers three main areas: (i) disaster diplomacy and health diplomacy http://www.disasterdiplomacy.org ; (ii) island sustainability involving safe and healthy communities in isolated locations http://www.islandvulnerability.org ; and (iii) risk education for health and disasters http://www.riskred.org

Dr Kelman will be discussing "Disaster risk reduction in 2050" with reference to climate change and sustainable development goals, but focussing on aspects of vulnerability and society, rather than technological innovation. Elements will include looking backwards as well as forwards, plus the firm connection of Disaster Risk Reduction being rooted in equity, justice, and governance.
