Nowadays, our world has been impacted by multiple hazards, including one of the most severe pandemics, COVID-19, since the end of 2019. For each time, the affected countries were facing losses based on lives. Also, the cooperation between people from various fields of knowledge and operation, whether in engineering, social science, communication, or other areas. Thus, it is crucial for disaster management in every phase, including preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. Therefore, we must mitigate future disasters’ impact using innovation toward sustainable growth and disaster risk reduction.

“Among all phases of the disaster risk management cycle: preparedness, response, recovery, and prevention and mitigation, there is still room for more innovations to reduce the disaster risk and impact.”

Assoc. Prof. Natt Leelawat, D.Eng.
