Abstract

Recent years have provided stark insights into the challenges of dealing with multiple, overlapping disasters in many parts of the world. Climate change reports indicate that these severe and complex disaster scenarios are likely to become more frequent. This paper provides a reflective oversight of the changing roles of universities in the context of these new disaster risk scenarios. A transformative approach is encouraged as part of an array of resilience strategies, interconnected systemically and temporally. A framework for disaster resilient universities is proposed based on the literature relating to the different spheres of university responsibilities and respective stakeholder groups, with due consideration for underlying principles and social responsibilities for disaster resilience.
