The mini-conference on Equity and Social Justice Surrounding Disasters during the upcoming Annual Meeting of the Southern Political Science Association in New Orleans, LA (or virtually, depending on COVID-19), January 7-9, 2021 is co-hosted by the Disaster and Emergency Research Network.

The conference fosters a cohesive and supportive network of disaster scholars in political science, public management, and public policy and should provide a venue for scholars to present their research, strengthen their network, and shape future research into disasters, including pandemics and other societal disruptions, via theoretically informed and methodologically rigorous empirical work.

Desireable topics include disaster management, mitigation, preparation, adaptation, recovery, or response.

The deadline for submitting paper proposals is Friday, August 21, 2020. Paper proposal application form.

The UN Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR) is the flagship report of the United Nations on worldwide efforts to reduce disaster risk. The GAR main report is published every three years by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and is the product of the contributions by nations and public and private science and research partners, amongst others. The GAR takes stock of global progress in implementing the targets and priorities of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction as well as disaster-related goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

As part of the development of the GAR 2022, the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction is issuing a Call for Contributing Papers. The purpose of this Call for Contributing Papers is to encourage additional research into specific topics, for example Synergies and trade-offs in pursuing risk resilient development pathways as well as how human behaviour drives decision making.

Papers must be submitted by 04. September 2020.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has demonstrated the fragility of the supply chain generally and exposed the need to harden our social and technical systems, including the humanitarian supply chain, to respond. With this special collection, the Natural Hazards Review hopes to make a substantial contribution to the understanding of humanitarian supply chain knowledge as a sub-discipline of supply chain management theory and praxis. The topics covered here aim to improve international, national, and regional capacities for disaster risk analysis, management, and governance.

The American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE) is looking for forum articles, technical notes, technical papers and case studies.

Deadline: 30.11.2020
