Disaster Management is the organisation and management of resources and responsibilities for dealing with all humanitarian aspects of emergencies, in particular preparedness, response and recovery, in order to lessen the impact of disasters.
The first to respond to a disaster are the people affected, the national authorities and national organisations. The planned transition from emergency to recovery in Sudan will involve a substantial shift in responsibility for managing humanitarian projects from the international community to national NGOs, line ministries and communities. This course aims to strengthen the capacities of national responders to take on this role.
By the end of the course participants will be able to:
- Analyse how vulnerabilities and capacities affect the resilience of communities to disasters.
- Describe the different phases of disaster management and the key activities for each phase.
- Explain the links between disaster management and disaster risk reduction.
- Identify the international legal instruments, humanitarian principles, codes and standards which guide disaster management.
- Describe and apply disaster management tools.
- Identify the roles and responsibilities of different actors in disaster management and analyse how they can work together in a coordinated manner.
- Prepare a disaster management contingency plan.
