The global climate system is in a constant state of flux. Changes in climate patterns are now becoming more evident. Drought affected areas are increasing, heavy precipitation is getting more frequent and typhoons and hurricanes are getting more intense. Disasters wipe out the accumulated gains of development efforts. This course shall focus on the Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction (CMDRR) framework which establishes the relationship between disaster and development. This framework asserts that disasters can be avoided and the effects of hazards can be reduced by increasing individual’s capability and capacity towards survivability and community’s capacity towards readiness. The goal of CMDRR is building resilient communities.
