Over the past decade, over 25 of these Disaster Risk Managment workshops have been facilitated across Australia, as well as in locations in the Asian-Pacific region, South Africa, Madagascar and the UK.

The purpose of the DRM workshop is both to develop practical skills for humanitarian practitioners who are involved in initiatives across the Disaster Risk Management Cycle (DRMC) spectrum; as well as to provide knowledge of broader DRM issues and best practice scenarios.

This is a practically-based intensive workshop which combines both classroom teaching and, for those seeking advanced standing, follow-up assignments. The program includes case studies from recent Australian and overseas humanitarian situations over the past decade.

The key items covered  include:

  • Key humanitarian guiding principles
  • The use of four key diagrams
  • The AS/NZS 4360:2004 and ISO 31000:2009 risk management process
  • A strong emphasis on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Community Based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM) initiatives
  • Case studies including the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami; the 2009 Victorian bushfires; and a current complex emergency situation (such as the ongoing Syrian humanitarian crisis)
