Introductory Message

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the inaugural newsletter for the Worldwide University Network (WUN) Research Development Fund (RDF) project, Strengthening Disaster Risk Governance and Enhancing Societal Resilience associated with COVID-19!

As we all know, COVID-19 has had a profound effect on everyone’s life, from how we interact with each other, how we work, our health care, to the very systems that allow our societies to run smoothly. These challenges have not always been handled seamlessly, and in turn have caused great disruption around the globe. These disruptions are massive tests for governance systems and for society’s ability to bounce back from adversity.

That is why it is imperative to learn from past and ongoing practices so we can fully understand the current situation with regards disaster risk governance and societal resilience. In doing so, we can plan and prepare better for similar events in the future. We hope in some way this newsletter can contribute to sharing the knowledge and practices and helping solve the problems that we now face.

As the title suggests, this project aims to explore aspects of governance and resilience around COVID-19, and this newsletter will bring you the latest research, events, and updates from the project and our partners.

With the current COVID-19 situation, it is important to stay informed and I encourage you to share this newsletter with your colleagues and friends. Please feel free to contact us with any feedback or contributions you may have.

Sincerely,
Dr. Hsiao-Wen Wang
