    Abstract The Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) Multi-Hazards Program organized a strategic meeting at Tohoku University n February 2018 to discuss their influence on disaster risk reduction policy. At the meeting, all agreed that a viable link between researchers and practitioners was missing. To improve this situation and create a mutually cooperative environment, it was suggested that material be developed to be used at training sessions, seminars, and classes to introduce the DRR products and approaches considered to be the most innovative and effective. This collection aims to share information about the most effective technology and innovations for DRR. It also provides guidelines to identify the most important, most suitable, and innovative DRR tools that can contribute to reducing disaster risks and preparing for future disasters in the readers’ own countries or regions.
