Abstract

Universities must forge new links, form coalitions and facilitate engagement with local stakeholders to reduce future natural disaster impacts. This paper introduces a conceptual framework and key features of an integrated model of boundary-spanning strategies and solution-focused coaching (SFC) approach in disaster risk reduction and recovery (DRRR). The model is based on stakeholders’ strengths, relationship-building. It is a goal setting approach in DRRR that uses boundary spanning strategies to empower multi-stakeholders in envisioning a more resilient community in the face of future disaster. Through stakeholders-community boundary spanners collaborations, DRRR shared goals and plans are co-produced.
