Type: Training Course Date: 08 - 11 Nov 2011 Location: Australia (Melbourne) Venue: Box Hill, Vic
The purpose of the DRM workshop is both to develop practical skills for humanitarian practitioners who are involved in initiatives across the Disaster Risk Management Cycle (DRMC) spectrum, as well as to provide knowledge of broader DRM issues and best practice scenarios. This is a practically-based intensive workshop which combines both classroom teaching and, for those seeking advanced standing, follow-up assignments. The program includes case studies from Japan 2011 earthquake/tsunami; the Australia 2011 Queensland/Victorian floods and Cyclone Yasi; the 2010 Pakistan floods; the 2010 Haiti earthquake; the 2009 Victorian bushfires; the 2008 Myanmar Cyclone Nargis; the 2007 Bangladesh Cyclone Sidr; and the 2004 Boxing Day Indian Ocean earthquake/tsunami.
This workshop is designed both for DRM and Emergency Management practitioners who are likely to be working in either Australia or the Asian-Pacific Region.
