The course focuses on strengthening community-based risk assessment capabilities in disaster-prone informal settlements.

It is useful and relevant to disaster management practitioners working in at-risk communities, local councillors / political leaders. However, the course is equally important for development practitioners, as well as those concerned with capacity-building, poverty reduction or sustainable development.
