ABOUT THE COURSE
As towns and cities grow and develop they are inevitably exposed to shocks and stresses from natural hazards. Resilient communities, towns and cities are better placed to cope with such shocks: the impacts are reduced and they recover faster. This course is about providing development and humanitarian professionals working in urban neighbourhoods to more effectively adapt, transform or negate the potential impact of natural hazards through the practice of disaster risk reduction (DRR) and resilience.

Wetlands play an essential role in supporting food security, in making water resources management sustainable and in adapting to climate change impacts. How do we prevent that wetlands continue to disappear in the same rate as in the past and that these valuable ecosystem services are lost? We believe we need stewards who can advocate the value of wetlands.
Although floods, earthquakes, droughts, and other natural hazards cannot be prevented, their impact on communities can be limited through disaster risk reduction (DRR) practices. On this 3-day course, you will learn the concept and practice of reducing disaster risks through systematically analysing and managing the causal factors of disasters. The course examines reducing exposure to hazards, lessening vulnerability of people and property, wisely managing land and the environment, and improving preparedness for adverse events.
What does the course cover?
The steady increase in climate related disasters such as floods, cyclones, storm surges and drought have increased the exposure and vulnerability of communities, their livelihoods, physical infrastructure and economic networks. An increasing hazard risk results in higher human and economic losses from disaster events.

About this course
Radiation is all around us, both natural and man-made. Although everyone is exposed to radiation every day, misunderstanding about radiation is common. This course will provide learners with an overview of issues in relation to radiation emergencies. In particular, it introduces the basics of radiation, health effects of acute exposure to radiation and measures in response to a radiation emergency.
What you will learn
There are three sections in this e-learning module on radiation emergencies:
Leaders who assume primary or secondary responsibilities for risk, resiliency and business continuity for a department, activity or location are often required to become professionals within a new profession. Whether a member of a Local Incident Management Team, or the Crisis Management Leadership Team – or in support of these teams, having the knowledge, skills and confidence to support risk, resiliency and business continuity management is critical.
The Disaster Management course was first delivered in 1986, and is ADPC's flagship course. It has been attended by a large range of people from national governments, UN agencies, NGOs, IFRC/RCS, and other organizations. There are more than 1,700 DMC Alumni to date from over 70 countries who occupy leadership role.
Disasters have devastating consequences. They cause deaths, the destruction of property and infrastructure, mass displacement, social and economic disruption and damage to the environment. Although floods, earthquakes, typhoons and other natural hazards can’t be prevented, their impact on communities can be limited through Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) practices.
