CDRR 2010 Second Edition of the Certificate of Advanced Studies in Disaster Risk Reduction "Vulnerabilities and Capacities in the Context of Climate Change" - First Part
The CDRR aims to strengthen the capabilities of participants in the field of natural disaster prevention, especially hydrometeorological disasters and/or those related to climate change. To achieve this, the course favours an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to the issue. This focuses on the reduction of vulnerabilities and the strengthening of the capacities of populations at risk. The course does not have a technical vocation but concentrates on a practical and field-oriented approach in order to consolidate the theoretical part. Indeed, some time will be devoted to field visits, interactive workshops and methodological tools. Thus, upon completion of the course programme, participants should be familiar with natural disaster risk management, especially with regards to hydrometeorological disasters. They will be in a position to: - Compare and analyse the main risk management approaches; - Interpret the current results of scientific research on climate change and challenges related to natural hazards, and identify appropriate measures in a specific situation; - Apply methodological tools to assess vulnerabilities and strengthen adaptation.
