  • Anyone interested in free, online course on Disaster Risk Management?

    Bradley Michael Lyon Posted Dec 19 2014, 7:28 PM

    Introduction to Disaster Risk Management | e-Institute


    This course is the introductory course of the World Bank Institute’s e-learning program on disaster risk management (DRM). The objective of this course is to familiarize development practitioners with contemporary concepts and practices in disaster management and contribute to a paradigm shift from reactive to proactive approaches in this cross-cutting field of development. It also aims to establish a common language and understanding among development practitioners in order to improve collaboration among various disciplines and integrate risk reduction considerations in development plans and decisions.

    The course addresses basic questions such as: What are considered natural disasters? Where do they strike the most and how? What are the components of comprehensive DRM? It also reviews the institutional arrangements and financing mechanisms of disaster management systems, and identifies the role of national and local actors in processes related to risk assessment, mitigation and financing. This course targets general development practitioners in order to raise their awareness and sensitivity in preventing natural disasters. The built-in learning tools provide an opportunity for participants to monitor their learning progress.

    The course will cover the following topics:

    • Module 1: Introduction to DRM: Basic Concepts, 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


    Target Audience:

    City officials and others interested in Disaster Risk Management
