Priority themes and possible research topics include:

  • Information sharing and distributing techniques for just-in-time programming focused on enhancing national, regional, multi-state, or state networks
  • Educational materials, programs, and delivery methods to provide national, regional, multi-state, or state constituents with added value in developing plans, response, recovery, and mitigation protocols related to disaster issues
  • Development of materials targeting underserved audiences such as, but not limited to, English Language Learners, individuals with low literacy, and older adults who lack technology access or literacy
  • Innovative approaches to address current and anticipated disaster education needs
  • Enhancing partnerships at the national, regional, multi-state, or state stakeholder levels to prepare for and respond to disasters through Extension education
  • Research projects that enhance the capabilities of Extension professionals to develop and deliver disaster programming to stakeholders
