Digitalization as a Tool for climate Change Adaptation in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in a Multi-regulatory Perspective”, Transdisciplinary Grant between the Department of Law, the Department of Political Science and the Department of Computer Science, Aalborg University, (Denmark)

Project Details


Adopting a multilevel regulatory perspective and taking a transdisciplinary approach (law, political science and computer science), this project will map the existing multi-regulatory framework applicable to the new nexus between digitalization, disaster risk reduction and adaptation. The goal of the researchers is to identify the barriers and potential opportunities to establishing a coordinated policy and legal response. The project will use three case studies to evaluate digitalization as a tool for climate change adaptation, reflecting its multi-level approach. It is the hope of the two researchers that by adopting a transdisciplinary approach, the three disciplines - Law, Political Science, and Computer Science - will interact and converge their agendas in order to identify and solve real world problems, “merging soft and hard sciences”. Adopting such an approach is critical to developing a coordinated policy and legal response to climate change adaptation across multiples sectors and levels of governance.
