ANDROID Exchange - Volume 2, Issue 2

Volume 2, Issue 2 of the new ANDROID Exchange newsletter is now available to download from our publications section of this website. 

This issues begins with a review of the third annual conference of the ANDROID network, which was held at MediaCity in Salford, UK. Held alongside the 4th International Conference on Building Resilience, the event attracted over 350 delegates from academia, policy and practice. The issue highlights some of the key events that took place during the conference, including a steering committee meeting of the UNISDR Making Cities Resilient campaign, and the second ANDROID residential doctoral school. Many of the ANDROID workpackage teams presented findings during the conference and the issue also includes a brief update on each work, package and links to more detailed papers and reports. As usual, we have updates from two of our regular contributors to Exchange: the UNISDR Making Cities Resilient Campaign and the International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment. Both are important partners for the network and we encourage you to explore recent developments. There is also news on the launch of ‘Horizon 2020’, the EU flagship programme for Research and Technological Development. With an overall budget of EUR 80 billion (LKR 14,000 billion) over the period 2014-2020 the programme is one of the most significant in its kind. Finally, Prof. Marinko Oluić from GEOSAT Ltd, a key partner in the ANDROID network, provides an introduction to spatial information (including remote sensing) in disaster management, risk reduction and disaster resilience.

Volume 2, Issue 3 of the new ANDROID Exchange newsletter is now available to download from our publications section of this website. 

The ANDROID network began almost three years ago and as we conclude the first workplan, this issue reports on some of our key outputs and outcomes, while also highlighting the network’s presence at a major global event that will confirm adoption of the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction. Key outputs of the ANDROID network are being presented at the Third United Nations World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, that will be held from 14 to 18 March 2015 in Sendai City, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. The issue describes some of the key events and activities where the ANDROID network will be represented. ANDROID’s presence at an event like this is vital to ensure that our work and findings are appropriately represented in major global policy developments including the post-2015 framework. The issue also includes an update on the publication of the ANDROID educational roadmap, the launch of the ANDROID open educational platform, and a major ANDROID symposium held in Latvia that provided a public dissemination and scientific forum, with its main aim to increase the awareness for researchers in the Baltic regions of enhancing resilience on a multidisciplinary perspective. As usual, the issue also includes updates from our key partners, the International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment and UNISDR.
