About Us

Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience at Durham

The Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience (IHRR) is a world-leading research institute in hazard, risk and resilience-based at Durham University. We support innovative research and training for use in policy and practice, collaborating directly with communities, NGOs and governments. Our commitment is to work with and learn from the widest possible range of stakeholders living with hazard and risk – empowering people, fostering resilience, and improving lives, both now and in the future.

Our success stems from our capacity to approach complex problems holistically, drawing together a transdisciplinary team of experts from across the physical sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. We train individuals to work with complex situations, in order to respond proactively to hazard and risk-related challenges. With over ten years of field-defining research, we are a growing community of researchers and practitioners, engaged in a wide range of projects across the globe.
