The project geoDRR - Geomatics for Disaster Risk Reduction is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission. It has a key objective to support Partner Country HEIs in building their capacity to develop and deliver high quality and specialisation academic programmes that can suitably prepare young scientists and professionals to provide applicable solutions to various societal problems, focusing on these resulting from climate change, mainly disaster risk vulnerability and susceptibility.
As already established, climate change impacts on both the frequency and intensity of weather-related disasters, while reduces resilience that can increase vulnerability in all kinds of natural hazards. Reducing disaster risk can, thus, contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation, especially in countries of the South-east Asia which are already among the most vulnerable, globally, to climate change.
