Earthquake Risk Reduction: Addressing the Unmet Challenges — The Need for an Interdisciplinary Research Approach

Earthquake Risk Reduction: Addressing the Unmet Challenges -- The Need for an Interdisciplinary Research Approach.

This 30+-page paper prepared by an EERI Working Group addresses complex vulnerabilities in earthquake risk reduction and the role that interdisciplinary research plays to improve our understanding of vulnerabilities and potential solutions. The nature of earthquake risk reduction dictates that new research opportunities and approaches be identified. The 13 recommendations offered in this paper are targeted at many audiences, including NSF and other potential funding agencies, policy makers in executive and legislative branches of various levels of government, universities and academic researchers, and professional societies that support the earthquake risk reduction community. While the paper focuses on earthquake issues, the lessons of disaster vulnerability are widely applicable to hurricanes, floods and other disasters.
