The primary objectives of the ICGdR are to:
1. Promote geo-disaster reduction for the benefit of human society and the natural environment, and capacity development, including education;
2. Combine international expertise and coordinate their efforts in geo-disaster reduction, thereby resulting in an effective international organization, which will act as a partner in various projects; and
3. Promote regional and global, multidisciplinary activity on geo-disaster reduction.
The main activities planned include international coordination, international collaborative researches, international meeting (e.g., symposium, field trip, lectures, training courses), database, editing and publication in “Geoenvrionmental Disasters”, the official journal of the ICGdR.
