Professionals in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), urban planning and management, and urban climate adaptation.
- Understand conflicts between disaster recovery and climate resilient planning;
- Review policies and practices in South East Asia;
- Identify and apply methods to integrate climate resilient planning into disaster relief;
- Develop skills to recognize stakeholders, organisational structures and processes during disaster relief planning periods;
- Apply these principles to an actual case
The course consists of an online portion covering much of the theory and background. Participants can run through the material and perform task at their own pace, which makes the course ideal for high level practitioners and executives. The second part of the course will consist of a 1-week face-to-face training in Singapore with a focus on skill and application. Participants will develop a take-home plan tailored to their particular conditions and needs.
The course builds on the knowledge acquired from IHE-Delft courses such as Urban Flood Management and Disaster Risk Mitigation, Water Resources Planning, Water Sensitive Cities, and Water Conflict Management, among others. Yet, the focus on resilient recovery is new and offers an innovative approach that differs from the typical courses on disaster management, flood risk management or climate adaptation.
