Natural hazards and disaster risk management certificate courses

Main organization(s): University of Twente (UT), Faculty of Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (ITC); UNU-DRM Centre for Spatial Analysis and Disaster Risk


The Department of Earth Systems Analysis and the UNU-ITC School for Disaster Geo-Information Management are offering a challenging programme of short courses:

- Remote Sensing and GIS for Natural Hazard Assessment
- Natural Hazards Modelling and Risk Assessment
- Risk Management and Environmental Assessment for Spatial Planning
- Distance course in Multi-Hazard Risk Assessment

These courses are targeted at professional workers who wish to increase there knowledge and skills. But also MSc. students who are interested to follow courses outside their home institution will find these courses beneficial.

Learning in an international setting

These short courses provide an excellent opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with an international group of students and professionals with a shared interest in earth surface processes, natural hazards and disaster risk management.

Focus on remote sensing and GIS

The availability of good quality spatial information is crucial to many components of disaster risk management. At ITC we aim at training a new generation of natural hazard experts, disaster risk managers and decision makers capable of producing and applying up-to-date geo-information to reduce disaster risk and to contribute to a more sustainable way of living. By sharing knowledge and expertise in the use of remote sensing and GIS we intend to contribute to local, regional and global environmental challenges.
