Damage and Reconstruction Needs Assessment (DRNA) is a specialization course under the Natural Disaster Risk Management Program that offers a set of diagnostic tools to measure the type and extent of damage and losses caused by a specific disaster, identify immediate recovery and longer-term reconstruction needs, and determine the economic and financial implications of the event. This can be used immediately after the emergency stage to assess the direct and indirect effects of a catastrophic event, and its implications for the social well-being and economic performance of the affected area.
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 DRM and their linkages to sustainable development challenges.
