Target audience

The first responder to any disaster is invariably the disaster-hit community itself, and this course seeks to ultimately build their capacities through individuals, organisations, community members and CBOs. Thus, this course is ideally suitable for professionals (like mid-level managers and field coordinators) who engage deeply with communities and will carry out disaster management activities with them.
