“About the UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction (UCL IRDR): Reducing the impact of disasters globally presents a colossal challenge that requires coordinated and collaborative action. The UCL IRDR brings together the wealth of knowledge and expertise across the university, and through research, teaching, public engagement and knowledge exchange aims to improve the understanding of risk and overcome the barriers to increasing resilience to disasters.
What Professor Faure Walker says about Rescue Global:
"Rescue Global's staff have made valuable contributions to IRDR public events, providing vital insight and stimulus to academic debate. They also provide impact through education, an example being running a real-time scenario exercise for the IRDR Risk, Disaster and Resilience MSc students, providing them real-time experience of logistical decision making in response to a disaster. I have been impressed by their efficiency and genuine desire to continually improve the service they provide through internal and external critique. Rescue Global's vision and activities are both noble and inspiring".”
