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.
