Hazards research should be the foundation for disaster risk reduction policies and procedures designed to reduce losses and increase coping capacity at all levels of government. This session highlights successful approaches of translating the academic literature into action for disaster management practitioners. A review of how core principles of geography have guided the implementation of global, national and subnational disaster risk reduction efforts. This session will discuss the methods, data and application of theory that have been used to effect change in response to disease (ex: Ebola and Zika Virus), natural hazards (ex: Hurricanes Harvey, Maria, Irma) and climate change. Experts will provide their perspectives on how science has advanced the field of disaster management over the last 10 years and discuss the challenges we may face in the next decade.
