Objectives

CATALYST does not seek to create new knowledge. Rather, the project explores ways to more effectively assemble, analyse and use the rapidly expanding knowledge base of natural hazards and disasters in order to then provide some guidelines for best practices both before and after such disasters occur.
In order to achieve this goal we must narrow the divide between researchers', practitioners' and policy makers' understanding of natural hazards and disasters.
This knowledge of risk management can be brought to bear on water resources management, land use planning and economic development.

Natural hazard and disaster risk reduction and adaptation should then become critical components of the sustainable development agenda.
