What We Do
The Centre for Community Disaster Research is a trans-disciplinary centre for research, education, and outreach related to natural, social, technological and economic disasters. The Centre is mandated with promoting rigorous academic research that is led by community need and involves university researchers, students, community groups, government stakeholders, and end-users of research as meaningful partners.
The CCDR is undertaking a number of pathbreaking projects including research initiatives, innovative courses and curriculum, policy development, and outreach activities. From crisis communication to family coping strategies, to business continuity in a post-disaster environment, our Faculty Affiliates and Partners are advancing the field in numerous ways.
