Establish the collaborative network of multi discipline research in climate change and disaster risk in the Ateneo. Facilitate the development of a University framework for Climate Change and Disaster Risk Research
We also work closely with the Manila Observatory, which has done pioneering studies on atmospheric sciences (especially climate and weather), and geo-hazards.
The program creates opportunities for the research outputs of the University to feed into policy, design of systems, and communication strategies, which are vital for managing both short and long-term disaster prevention, preparation, and response.
Current significant University initiatives include the CHED-supported multi-disciplinary risk research program of the Loyola Schools on a holistic approach on disaster risk analysis for sustainable development and the School of Science and Engineering hazard and risk analysis and innovative technology development for disaster preparedness, response, and management.
