For Integrative Approaches to Extreme Environmental Events
2016 – 2020
Impact360 was established to amplify the efforts of researchers and practitioners working on natural hazards and disasters. It was founded in 2017 after a series of interdisciplinary workshops and working groups were facilitated between 2013 and 2017. The organization’s goal is to increase the capacity of researchers and practitioners to collaborate and create evidence-based solutions for reducing the impacts of natural hazards and disasters.
Impact360 connected researchers, practitioners, needs, and resources to create problem-focused professional communities that can design scalable solutions. To achieve this, the organization promoted the integration of knowledge and approaches across relevant disciplines and fields, promoting collaboration between university, government, and private sector organizations and professionals.
