Disaster Risk Reduction in Emergencies Training

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): RedR - United Kingdom

Type: Training Course Date: 01 - 05 Aug 2016 Location: United Kingdom (London) Venue: RedR UK, 250a Kennington Lane, SE11 5RD

About the course:

Set amidst the context of global climate change and population growth, the number of natural and human-made emergencies every year has increased drastically in the past decade. Although floods, earthquakes, droughts, and other natural hazards cannot be prevented, their impact on communities can be limited through disaster risk reduction (DRR) practices.

You will learn the concept and practice of reducing disaster risks through systematically analyzing and managing the causal factors of disasters. For example, the course examines reducing exposure to hazards, lessening vulnerability of people and property, wisely managing land and the environment, or improving preparedness for adverse events.

Blending theory with practice, this workshop takes you through good practices in the stages of the disaster risk management cycle and the commonly used terminology, frameworks, tools and approaches to effective DRR.

The curriculum also covers a selection of global DRR documents and frameworks, including the United Nations-endorsed Hyogo Framework for Action and the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) system.
