JCDR awarded Massey University Research Medal

Rounding off a productive and exciting year for the centre, in December it was announced that JCDR was to be awarded the prestigious Massey University Team Research Medal.

The highest award for research bestowed by the University, the Medal recognises the depth and breath of high-quality research undertaken at JCDR and acknowledges the concerted effort by our staff to make to make this research relevant, accessible and communicable. It congratulated JCDR as being a "multi-disciplinary team with an outstanding national and international reputation, with a commitment to research excellence that connects with wider society.”

The national series of workshops following the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR) were specifically mentioned, with the University recognising that these enhanced New Zealanders' connection to global disaster risk reduction research and policy.
