This unit will introduce the concept of risk reduction and management across local and international contexts. It will also include case studies to explore how Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) programmes are put into practice as well as the examination of Disaster Risk Management (DRM) outcomes from humanitarian and emergency responses locally and internationally. The unit will include the use of cloud concept presentations, virtual case studies and simulations to examine the issues of disaster preparedness and DRR across different physical and cultural contexts. Students will also critically examine the role of different stakeholders in pre- and post-disaster phases and the strength of community development-based disaster risk management processes. Another key component of the learning in this unit will be exploring the role of security and social risk as key components of risk management processes in humanitarian contexts.
