      Training on Disaster Risk Reduction

      About the course
      Disaster risk is considered as the combination of the severity and frequency of a hazard, the numbers of people and assets exposed to the hazard, and their vulnerability to damage. Since we cannot reduce the severity of natural hazards, the main opportunity for reducing risk lies in reducing vulnerability and exposure.

      On this 5 days course, the participants will learn on identification, understanding and measurement of disaster risks. The course will build the leaners’ knowledge and skills in addressing underlying risk drivers to reduce disaster risk, lessen the vulnerability of communities and, consequently, maintain the sustainability of development.

      Target Participants
      This course is aimed at professional working in humanitarian organizations, governments, funding agencies, research and non-government organizations responsible for disaster risk reduction.

      Course duration
