  Long-term performance and sustainability of post-disaster housing projects (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/ABE/WEDAWATTA)
  Dr G Wedawatta
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
One of the four key priorities of the Sendai Framework of Action 2015-2030 (1) is to ‘Build Back Better’ in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction.

  UAV Bridging and Real-time Deployment Protocols for Disaster & Emergency Response Scenarios (PARRGU18SCID)
  Prof G Parr, Dr E Ren
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Unmanned Aerial vehicles (UAVs) play an invaluable role in information collection and data fusion in a variety of applications such as disaster response, search and rescue, surveillance, forest fire monitoring and provision of temporary communications when terrestrial/mobile networks are disrupted.

The loading that results from ash fall following volcanic eruptions can pose a significant problem to the structural integrity of buildings.
  Global flood predictability, early warning and the communication of probabilistic forecasts.
  Dr H Cloke, Dr L Stephens
Applications accepted all year round
Earth system models are increasingly being used to support decision-making processes in disaster risk management, for example, they can be used in early warning systems for natural hazards, where the forecasts can lead to disaster risk reduction.
  How does alternative land use policy in deltas affect food production and development: A case of the Mahanadi?
  Prof J Dash, Prof EL Tompkins
