A call for change in the DRR space come to my attention last week. RADIX - a group dedicated to the "Radical interpretation of disasters" seek "to inspire and inform more respectful, reciprocal and genuine relationships between 'local' and 'external' researchers in disaster studies." They have published a Manifesto calling for "rethinking our research agendas, our methods and our allocation of resources."
I'm hopeful they will elevate the aspirations of Indigenous communities in this space because without a commitment to Indigenous rights, any such strategy can only be empty and even counterproductive. But here's hoping!
