The UKRI GCRF Urban Disaster Risk Hub project have launched their website www.tomorrowscities.org
Tomorrow’s Cities is a 5 year $25m interdisciplinary research hub led by collaborations of local experts and practitioners based in four rapidly developing, multi-hazard-exposed cities, and is supported by an international network of specialists.
The four focus cities, Kathmandu, Nairobi, Quito and Istanbul, face multiple hazards including earthquakes, landslides, flooding and volcanoes.
While working towards objectives specific to their multi-hazards the four cities aim to move towards sustainable risk-informed urban development.
Tomorrow’s Cities is the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Urban Disaster Risk Hub – a five-year global interdisciplinary research hub. Tomorrow’s Cities is one of 12 UKRI GCRF Hubs funded as part of the UK AID strategy, putting research at the heart of the efforts to deliver the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
