Community Based Risk Management


Communities are the first to suffer from emergencies and the first to respond. Many initiatives, programs, and projects have proven successful through active community participation in community-based models. This course uses case studies to cover qualitative and quantitative risk, hazard, vulnerability, and capacity assessments in community settings.

It also emphasizes the integration of the concept of risks in resource assessment, hazard mapping, simulation exercises, potential disaster loss, and levels of acceptable risk assessments. Lastly, it includes training on how to utilize risk and vulnerability assessments to formulate prevention and mitigation strategies on national, provincial and local scales.
