IJDRBE is the only journal in the field to promote research and scholarly activity that examines the role of building and construction to anticipate and respond to disasters that damage or destroy the built environment. In particular, it aims at developing the skills and knowledge of the built environment professions and will strengthen their capacity in strategic and practical aspects of disaster prevention, mitigation, response and reconstruction to mitigate the effects of disasters nationally and internationally.

The journal publishes original and refereed material that contributes to the advancement of the research and practice, and provides contributing authors with an opportunity to disseminate their research and experience to a broad audience.To find out more about publishing in IJDRBE click here and for further details on the journal visit:

IJDRBE is edited by Professors Dilanthi Amaratunga ([email protected] ) and Richard Haigh ([email protected] ) from Global Disaster Resilience Centre at University of Huddersfield, a key partner of the IIIRR network.
