This project aims to establish a working group on Higher Education Institutions on Disaster Resilience and Sustainable Development under the ProSPER.Net umbrella. Its aim is to form a robust regional network with the collective capacity to lead initiatives that protect society from shocks to physical, socio-cultural, politico-economic and natural systems and hence enhance the potential for sustainable development of the region. The working group intends to pursue curriculum reform to integrate the sustainability agenda into postgraduate courses, curricula and programmes, along with the development of a multidisciplinary curriculum mapping tool focussing on the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
