Summary of presentation

Disaster diplomacy research examines how and why disaster-related activities do and do not influence peace and conflict, from community to international levels. Global health topics intersect with many areas of disaster risk reduction and disaster response. This presentation explores a research and policy agenda for viewing global health from a disaster diplomacy perspective.
