Risk & Vulnerability

Jana Bernhard, student: "Why do all this research if you don't then use the results? At UNU-MERIT, I have the feeling that results are taken into account in doing something in the field. What we definitely learned was to draw maps that could be used to visualise information which is very important for risk communication because it gives people more information in a shorter time frame. Then we learned to use them to focus on a geographical area, a specific type of risk, a specific population even. I want to do research with an impact."
