The Introduction to Disaster Risk Management course is the introductory course of the World Bank Institute's e-Learning program on disaster risk management. The objective of this course is to familiarize development practitioners with contemporary concepts and practices in disaster management and contribute to the paradigm shift from re-active to pro-active approaches in this cross-cutting field of development. It also aims at establishing a common language and understanding among development practitioners in order to improve the collaboration among different disciplines and integrate risk reduction considerations in development plans and decisions.

This introductory course of the program addresses basic questions such as “what are to be considered natural disasters?", “where do they strike the most and how?” and “what are the components of comprehensive disaster risk management?". It also reviews the institutional arrangements and financing mechanisms of disaster management systems, and identifies the role of national and local actors in the processes related to risk assessment, mitigation and financing. This course targets general development practitioners to raise their awareness and sensitivity in prevention of natural disasters. The built-in learning tools of the course give an opportunity to participants to monitor their learning progress.

The course will cover the following topics:

• Module 1: Introduction to DRM - basic concepts of Disaster Risk Management, players and Terminology;
• Module 2: Prevention, Relief and Reconstruction: from Vulnerability and Risk assessment to Damage and Reconstruction Needs Assessment;
• Module 3: Introduction to Safer Cities, Community Based DRM and best available tools to enhance resilience.
