Subject: Recruitment to post of Executive Director of Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR) programme

Dear Nordin,

I hope things are well with you. Your Office will have received already the announcement that Maureen sent out yesterday inviting applications for the newly established post of Executive Director of ICSU-ISSC-UNISDR Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR) programme. I’m simply taking the liberty of sending you a copy since you have, I know, a strong interest in pushing forward the hazards activities of ICSU as a priority.
You may also know that the three cosponsors recently accepted the generous offer of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), the Chinese National Member of ICSU, to host and financially support an International Programme Office for IRDR in Beijing for the duration of the programme (see also second attachment). The Executive Director, as head of this office, will be responsible for the management of IRDR under the authority of the IRDR Scientific Committee, chaired by Gordon McBean. The appointment of an Executive Director of the highest calibre will be of great importance for the success of IRDR, and wish to attract excellent candidates. Could I therefore ask whether you could distribute this Announcement as widely as possible among your own professional and institutional contacts within Asia in the coming days? I know that our timing is tight, so I should be doubly grateful for any help you might give us. Jacinta has already sent it to the communications person at the Asia Pacific Network for Global Change Research
Do let me know if you would prefer a Word file in order to be able to incorporate the text into any newsletter or whatever.
With best wishes for the approaching holiday season,
