The vision of the IRDR programme is being pursued through the principal goals and strategic activities proposed in the IRDR Science Plan (ICSU 2008), and outlined in detail in its Strategic Plan (2013-2017). The successful implementation of these actions will depend on the support of the implementation of this Plan and active collaboration, cooperation and partnership with organisations that have similar existing research activities, and policy- and decision-making processes. Attainment of these goals will lead to a better understanding of hazards, vulnerability and risk; the enhanced capacity to model and project risk into the future; greater understanding of the decision-making choices that lead to risk and how they may be influenced; and how this knowledge can effectively lead to disaster risk reduction.
