May 2017 to June 2019 – Risk, Crisis, Disaster and Development Management (RCDDM): Future Leader Programme
Funded by Kansai University’s Grant-in-Aid for the Promotion and Upgrading of Education and Research, this 22-months research project was led by the Principal Investigators: Dr. Nibedita S. Ray-Bennett and Dr. Hideyuki Shiroshita. The Research Assistants on this project were: Mrs. Denise Corsel and Ms. Sigi Fu.
This research project aimed to identify a future joint Leicester-Kansai programme that will be distinct and yet, relevant to build skills, learning and teaching experiences for an effective management of risk, crisis, disaster and development interface. This was done by exploring the needs for RCDDM courses/programmes by learning from current professionals and the student community (the future leaders).

As part of the project, two workshop with key stakeholders were held- one in the UK (top image) and one in Japan (bottom image). These workshops were well attended and received good feedback. The findings from these workshops will be presented in the project’s final report. The products for this project are still a work in progress.
