The Risk-Sensitive Land Use Planning course was developed by EMI for the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR). It aims to demonstrate the benefits of incorporating disaster risk reduction objectives in land use planning, presents the process involved in integrating disaster mitigation with local land use management, and illustrates the advantages of this integrated approach using specific examples. This course offers professionals and practitioners an opportunity to explore the link between land use planning and disaster risk reduction through a series of learning tools: presentations, readings, case studies and exercises, tests, an end of course project, and interactions with peers and faculty.
