Dr Chen in Jakarta
Talk in Indonesia for Dr Albert Chen
In February 2017 CWS Research Fellow Dr Albert Chen visited Jakarta to talk on our centre’s current projects.
There were participants from 14 countries discussing the approaches to support research that will inform disaster management practice and policy. One area of particular discussion was the current disaster risk reduction research efforts in the Asia-Pacific. Dr Chen shared research from many EU, British Council and EPSRC projects which the centre has worked on.
Dr Chen said “Bridging the gap between science and policy is vital to the Centre for Water Systems. Speaking on the area of Disaster Management in Indonesia underlined this principle, and it is so satisfying to see our research influencing policy, and ultimately people’s lives”.
