Despite advances being made in the theory of integrating disaster risk reduction into broader developmental frameworks, practical applications are limited to micro-models which, inexplicably, do not seem amenable to replication or scaling-up. One reason could be the lack of platforms for sharing and learning. BEDROC would like to create learning platforms for meaningful integration and mainstreaming and views this as a focus area for intervention.

BEDROC is to collaborate with research and academic institutions like IITs, TISS and MIDS, to evolve action research and studies. This will enable not only in planning and enhancing further interventions but will also keep the communities abreast of the latest developments in disaster response and development.
