Dr Robert Glasser, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General (SRSG) for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), will be visiting the University of Reading next week for a special guest lecture to students, co-sponsored by the Walker Institute.
As SRSG for Disaster Risk Reduction, Dr Glasser leads the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) which serves as the global focal point in the UN system for the coordination of disaster reduction. One of its key aims is to ensure synergies among the disaster reduction activities of the UN system, regional organisations and other activities such as teaching and research.
DRR is an issue of major growing importance, including across a number of law and non-law research and teaching areas, including at the University and Walker Institute.
Later on this year (29 June - 1 July) there will also be a Disaster Risk Reduction and International Law Symposium, held at Reading and supported by the Walker Institute. Learn more about this event and it's aims.
