The National Science Foundation's designated information clearinghouse for the societal dimensions of hazards and disasters.
We are dedicated to reducing disaster harm by:
- Translating and sharing hazards and disaster research and information
- Building connections between researchers, nonprofit and private sector professionals, the media, policy makers, and local, state, and federal officials;
- Advancing social science and interdisciplinary knowledge, with a special emphasis on the most vulnerable populations and places; and
- Training and mentoring a diverse next generation of hazards and disaster professionals.
