IRDR Young Scientists Programme was initiated in 2016. After four batches of application, it is now community of 163 young researchers from over 40 countries. Our young scientists have participated in the research of IRDR DATA and RIA working groups, joined training programmes hosted by IRDR institutions and, recommended by IRDR, to to attending the international and regional DRR meetings and conferences. For more details of the activities of IRDR young scientists, please refer to the homepage of IRDR Young Scientists Programme.
IRDR has now entered into its Phase II with upgraded mission and functions based on A Framework for Global Science in support of Risk Informed Sustainable Development and Planetary Health, that has identified nine research priorities considering the dynamic risk landscape (ISC, UNDRR, & IRDR, 2021). IRDR believes that young professionals is one of the main pillars to support the implementation of the Framework. Thus, IRDR designs the actions to empower youth and young professional engaged in DRR through redesigning the IRDR Young Scientists Programme and expanding the alliance with DRR youth initiatives and network.
