This Graduate Certificate addresses the global need for more effective practical implementation of disaster risk policy measures in regional countries impacted regularly by natural disasters. Students in this program will develop knowledge of how to approach and integrate disaster preparedness, mitigation and recovery programs to reduce societal and human losses, and enhance community resilience. Through interaction with predictive science for geo and hydrological hazards, students will be able to contribute effectively to country and governance specific disaster policy development which address priority hazards. This requires an understanding of the complex integrated policies and practices in this field, and the correlated impacts of climate change, development and socio-political frameworks on disaster governance. The theoretical, conceptual and practical courses in this Graduate Certificate will include site visits to key government, civil society and industry organisations. The program takes into account the significant impacts disasters have in the Asia-Pacific, Australian, Caribbean, and African regions. It addresses international policy on disasters, including the Yokohama (1994), Hyogo (1995) and Sendai (2015) frameworks which advocate the development of an integrated science/inclusive governance approach.
