Community-based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM) is a specialization course under the NDRMP that introduces concepts, tools, and mechanisms to help design and implement community-based disaster risk management programs. The course highlights the flexibility and innovation required for these community-based initiatives. Further, it underscores the need for greater engagement with people and a better understanding of their risks and resources.
The course consists of an introduction, the basic learning materials and a discussion forum to facilitate the learning via interaction with program faculty. The introduction includes a short course description, review of learning objectives and outcomes, and a summary of main issues. The basic learning materials consist of 30 to 35-minute slide show presentations, case studies and readings, quizzes, a final exam and an end of the course project.
Discounts are available through group enrollment to encourage institutional learning.
This course is offered to disaster risk management professionals, development practitioners, government officials, policymakers, consultants, researchers and specialists of training and academic institutions, NGO representatives, and humanitarian and community leaders, who are interested in acquiring fundamental knowledge on CBDRM and their linkages to sustainable development challenges.
