Journal of Applied Disaster Research (JADR) is a new addition to the fledgling field of disaster science. This is an emerging area of study that cuts across disciplinary boundaries, and fosters a spirit of collaboration. Hence the journal istelf seeks to be a platform where the scientists, academicians, professional and students of all hues, but united in their passion to find solutions to thedisasters and their multifarious manifestations, could come to a common ground. The journal has its origins in the Disaster, Risk and Vulnerability Conference DRVC 2011 which was hosted by the School of EnvironmentalSciences, Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, India (CHAERT) and the subsequent formation of the CHAERT: Charitable Society for Humanitarian Assistance and Emergency Response Training. The vision of CHAERT is to build a safer and disaster resilient community by developing a holistic, proactive, multi­disaster andtechnology driven strategy for Disaster Management.
