Risk and disaster reduction, particularly within the context of dealing with uncertainty and increasing resilience, are high on local, national and international agendas. The Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction (IRDR), leads multidisciplinary research, knowledge exchange and advanced teaching across UCL. We have global, national and local recognition, evidenced by international attendance at our annual Academic Summit, our Annual Conference addressed by the UK Government's Chief Scientific Advisor, and our training of London Resilience's gold command.. In all our Masters programmes, students explore the characterisation, quantification, management and reduction of risk and disasters, along with their associated impacts, from a diverse range of scientific, technical, socio-economic, political, environmental, ethical and cultural perspectives.
