Understanding Risk

Understanding Risk

This e-learning course will explain how risk characteristics are identified, how this information is used to assess overall risk, and how this information is used to address risk. The course is an important prerequisite to the more detailed and intensive workshop provided by the Global Practice. The course provides staff with foundational understanding and knowledge of the core concepts and ideas around Disaster Risk Management today. The interactive online format allows participants to explore:

  • the models and mini case histories applicable to Disaster Risk Management including the functions of the Risk, Exposure, and Vulnerability model as explained through interactive exercises and mini-case studies.
  • the different DRM products available today and how they are applied

This e-learning course was developed with financial support from the European Union (EU) in the framework of the ACP-EU Africa Disaster Risk Financing Initiative, managed by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery.
