DRIA partners with the WORLD BANK

In May 2018, the DRIA Research Programme and THE WORLD BANK agreed to become partners and start a fruitful collaboration towards more resilient cities and communities.
The World Bank Group is one of the world’s largest sources of funding and knowledge for developing countries. Its five institutions share a commitment to reducing poverty, increasing shared prosperity, and promoting sustainable development.

The participation of Josef Leitmann, Lead Disaster Risk Management Specialist, as one of the Keynote Speakers and Jury Members for the 2018 DRIA International Symposium and Competition, is the first collaboration of the agreement between both institutions.
