The Comprehensive Disaster Risk Management Framework (CDRMF) is the introductory course of the EMI-GFDRR (Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery) NDRM web-based training package in disaster risk management. The course addresses basic questions such as “Why are disasters a development issue?” and “What are the fundamental components and processes of disaster risk management?” It also reviews the institutional arrangements and financing mechanisms of disaster risk management systems, and identifies the role of national and local actors in the processes related to risk assessment, mitigation and financing.
