The Course equips students with knowledge of Ecosystem – Disaster Risk Reduction and aware them the methods of Disaster risk reduction. It will give an interdisciplinary interest among students of other disciplines.
Although floods, earthquakes, droughts, and such other natural hazards cannot be prevented, their impact on communities can be limited through disaster risk reduction (DRR) practices mankind can adjust with adopting measures to cope up with it and or find alternatives to live on smoothly.
The purpose of this course is to encourage and practice Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) approaches that encompass prevention, risk mitigation, preparedness, risk sharing and response to disaster events to protect lives and improve livelihoods.
There has been a paradigm shift in approach to disaster management from response and relief centric to risk management centric, and thus, calling integration of climate change adaptation and sustainability concerns along DRR into developmental process.
This course introduces the concepts, tools, methods for disaster risk management, specifically for climate and weather-related disasters; role of policies and frameworks at international, national and sub-national contexts, with focus on emerging issues and recent developments
