UC Berkeley Center for Catastrophic Risk Management

The Center for Catastrophic Risk Management at University of California, Berkeley, is pioneering applied research in complex, multi-jurisdictional systems to develop pragmatic solutions to the right problems. CCRM's customized research teams, drawn from academia, industry and government, collaborate with cities to develop targeted solutions for the messy problems of the twenty-first century. CCRM's approach ensures that local knowledge and perspectives inform the definition of “the problem,” the design of solutions, and the process of implementation, evaluation and adaptation, strengthening local capacity for resilience and providing an enduring legacy.
