Abstract

This paper describes a novel data set and an accompanying online listing and interactive web map that displays university-based hazards and disaster research centers globally. To date, this initiative has led to the identification of 360 academic hazards and disaster research centers across the five major United Nations geographic regions, including 23 in Africa, 183 in the Americas, 94 in Asia, 37 in Europe, and 23 in Oceania. This web-based initiative is launched in an effort to allow more systematic identification of hazards and disaster research centers and to increase connections, communication, collaboration, and access to emerging research from a variety of disciplines.
