Disaster Research

You might dismiss the image above as something exaggerated, or out of a Hollywood film and therefore, unrealistic. Actually, such power and devastation are not too far fetched. The earth despite all of her glory and splendor is changing right under our feet, so much that the metamorphosis warrant attention.

The Center for Disaster and Displacement Services as an organization focus less on the reasons for climate change and more on the reality of change. Irrespective of the culprit, major shifts in climate produce massive storms with devastating outcomes effecting millions of people around the world. Through collaboration and extensive research, we seek to understand the impact of a changing climate in order  to minimize disaster risk and adequately prepare for disaster response and recovery.
