Save the Date | Workshop "Responsible Science in Natural Hazard Research & Management in Nepal"



 

Date: 14th February 2020 / 2nd Falgun 2076, 10am-5pm
Venue: Hotel Annapurna, Kathmandu

 

Coming to the end of a three-year project “touRES - Resilience of tourism systems to natural hazards in the Himalayas” of the University of Innsbruck, the questions on “how” and “why” we do research in the field of natural hazards research and management became crucial. To address these questions, a one-day workshop will provide an opportunity to critically reflect our own work as scientists as well as emerging issues in the context of natural hazard research and management.


Objectives

The objectives of the workshop is to give room for a substantial discussion on the adequacy of research with practical stakeholders, NGO representatives and local as well as international researchers working within the field of natural hazards research and management.

Specifically, the workshop aims to discuss the following issues:

  • Inclusiveness of research: involving local actors
  • Communicating research into practical action: dissemination strategies re-examined
  • Appropriate technologies in natural hazards research and management
  • Dealing with natural hazards in an uncertain, complex, and ambiguous future


Expected outcomes

A detailed workshop report will be produced and shared with all participants. The publication of a position paper on the biggest challenges, developments and aims of Responsible Science in natural hazard research and management is envisaged.

The workshop is organized by the University of Innsbruck, Austria and kindly supported by Practical Action, Smartphones for Water Nepal (S4W), ICIMOD and the Himalayan Research Center.
