MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Village Earth

OTHER ORGANIZER(S): Colorado State University

Type: Training Course Date: 31 Aug - 05 Oct 2012 Location: United States of America (Distance learning/online) Venue: Duration: 5 weeks

This course introduces the major activities and concepts related to disaster mitigation. It covers components, programs and organizations, and major stakeholders involved in mitigation. Since grassroots community movements are vital to disaster mitigation programs, the course focuses on community-based approaches to mitigation. It also discusses various issues related to disaster mitigation such as sustainability and best practice building techniques. The course introduces participants to the relevant disaster mitigation academic literature and relates theoretical findings to practice. Additionally, this course focuses on the inequalities that result from disasters. Sixty years of research indicates that disasters are not equal opportunity events, and the same is true in regards to disaster mitigation programs. The course uses recent case studies, videos, presentations and group discussion to explore the content.
