ABOUT THE COURSE
ABOUT THE COURSE
Aid agencies in recent urban emergencies have often lacked the ability to respond effectively in these environments. The urban context is much more complex than many rural or camp-focused emergencies, requiring specialist technical support to make immediate repairs to infrastructure that aid agencies don’t have the capacity to offer.
This programme provides participants with the opportunity to develop and expand knowledge, understanding and judgment in theoretical and practical disaster management and humanitarian action.
Jointly offered by the School of Nursing (SN) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) & The Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) at The University of Manchester (UoM), UK
