Disaster Information Resource Centre

The Disaster Information Resource Centre (DIRC) is a hub of disaster-related information for the consumption of public-sector departments and organizations, print and electronic media, students, development professionals, and academicians. Apart from books, research papers, training material, and documentaries, the DIRC will also provide on-line information on disaster statistics, news, briefs and soft copies of important or requested materials.

Once established and subject to the availability of financial resources, the DRC may start publishing a quarterly bilingual magazine on Disaster Risk Management, which will disseminate national disaster updates (activities of government and NGOs), a couple of lead articles, selected interviews and good practices (national or international) on Disaster Risk Management.
