Course Description

The development process does not necessarily reduce vulnerability to natural hazards. Instead, it can unwittingly create  new  forms  of  vulnerability  or  exacerbate  existing  ones,  impeding  efforts  to  reduce  poverty  and  promote growth,  sometimes  with  tragic  consequences.  ‘Win-win’  solutions  for  securing  sustainable  development,  reducing poverty  and  strengthening  hazard  resilience,  therefore,  need  to  be  explicitly  and  actively  sought,  particularly  as  climate  change  looks  set  to  increase  the  incidence  of droughts  and  floods  and  the  intensity  of windstorms.  Such solutions are best derived by integrating disaster risk reduction strategies and measures within the overall development framework, viewing disaster risk reduction as an integral component of the development process rather than as an end in its own right. This course does not just revolve on disaster risk reduction, but expound on useful assessment and analysis tools.
