RRAD (Disaster)

The Risk Reduction, Adaptation and Disaster Student Interest Group (RRAD) explores the overlap between disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation and promotes its integration into the wider Yale community. Past activities include: helping secure internships for F&ES students with international and domestic organizations such as the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and Mercy Corps, raising awareness and financial support for several international disasters, and visiting the UNISDR headquarters in New York City. RRAD has also engaged in increasing F&ES partnerships and collaborations within the broader Yale community (such as the School of Public Health) and beyond the University with organizations such as the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Mercy Corps, UNISDR, and UNDP.
