What is the Natural Hazards Partnership?

The Natural Hazards Partnership, established in 2011, provides authoritative and consistent information, research and analysis on natural hazards for the development of more effective policies, communications and services for civil contingencies, governments and the responder community across the UK.

Our Aims

Through the consortium of public bodies that forms the Natural Hazards Partnership, we aim to:

  • Establish a forum for the exchange of knowledge, ideas, expertise, intelligence and best practice in relation to natural hazards
  • Provide a timely, common and consistent source of advice to government and emergency responders for civil contingencies and disaster response
  • Create an environment for the development of new services to assist in disaster response

If you have any questions or comments about working with us or how we conduct our science, please contact us!
