Diasaster Management Training Course

2 credits

Although disasters cannot be completely avoided, they can be foreseen and planned for.  Appropriate measures can be taken to reduce the risk of potential disasters and to minimize their impact with well-prepared responses when disasters do occur. Case study work introduces students to past disasters and crises. In addition to analyzing past mistakes, students are given a clear understanding of disaster management and risk reduction strategies. Students learn how to work with operational and planning teams at all levels, from local to international, and to understand the practical levels of preparedness that can be achieved and maintained. Students also gain the ability to critically appraise existing plans and provide reasoned and well-founded recommendations for improvement.


This course is required for the IDHL module of the MIHA.  If interested in pursuing the MIHA, please apply here.
