Students will learn about and explore the characterisation, quantification, management and reduction of risk, as well as disasters and their associated impacts, from a broad range of scientific, technical, socio-economic, political, environmental, ethical and cultural perspectives. Through this multidisciplinary approach, students gain expertise in analysing complex challenges, enabling them to become future leaders who drive policy change and innovation.
Given that 90 per cent of recorded major disasters caused by natural hazards from 1995 to 2015 were linked to weather and climate change, many organisations are now building their capacity to understand what needs to be done differently to integrate adaptation to climate change with their work on disaster risk reduction (DRR). However, it is not always obvious how these two areas can fruitfully connect and operate in tandem within the wider context of development. This course provides participants with increased knowledge of the concepts and intersections of climate change and DRR, and the approaches, methods and tools that can be used to more effectively integrate climate change in DRR.
As a global strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) the United Nations Sendai Framework has become a game-changer for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The result is a challenge to organisations throughout civil society and the world over to alter how they address issues of hazard and vulnerability, and deal with risk.
The Master of Disaster Resilience and Sustainable Development program at the University of Newcastle, Australia builds upon both the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the 2030 Development Agenda including climate change adaptation and partnerships for development funding through its directed course options.
The University of Pavia and the University School of Advanced Studies IUSS Pavia (Italy) are happy to announce the new international Master of Science in Civil Engineering for Mitigation of Risk from Natural Hazards (CivRisk).
This course explores how humanitarian organisations intervene in disasters around the world and builds you into a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, computer scientists and social scientists that can respond to humanitarian crises and/or foster community-led development in a culturally sensitive and sustainable way.

ORGANIZZATORE: Netherlands Institute for Safety (NIFV) - LUOGO: Netherlands, the (Arnhem) - SCADENZA ISCRIZIONI:
Our society is increasingly vulnerable to major disasters and crises. Every year there are many expected and unexpected events that involve risks and dangers that require a multidisciplinary action. Fire & rescue services, police, medical assistance (GHOR), safety-regions, defense, municipalities, water boards and non-governmental organisations are increasingly working together. Good preparation, good collaboration and professional guidance are key aspects. Crisis managers with enough and sustainable background knowledge are essential. The professional Master of Crisis and Public Order Management (MCPM) provides an academic learning program for experts.
Applications for MEEES, approved and financially supported by the European Commission under the framework of the Erasmus Mundus programme, have opened, with a deadline of January 24, 2014. MEEES is organized by a consortium of European university and research institutions, led by IUSS Pavia’s UME (Understanding and Managing Extremes) Graduate School (www.umeschool.it) and featuring the participation of the University of Patras (Greece), the University of Grenoble Joseph Fourier (France), the Middle East Technical University (Turkey).
This Masters degree in Disaster Management is one of the best in Africa. The course structure makes it possible for the professional in the work field to complete the course in two years, and because of this, 80% of the students are part time students. The programme consist of the following:
• three contact sessions during the year
• assignments throughout the year
• practical examinations
• mini dissertation

The PhD in Territory, Risk and Public Policies is an advanced training program geared towards developing skills of scientific research and higher professional qualifications in the sciences of risk. The program is designed for an audience with higher education with diverse backgrounds, ranging from social sciences to natural and exact sciences and technologies, allowing an integrated view, the quantification of resilience and strength of communities and individuals based on the joint consideration of many uncertainties, and the selection of relevant variables for the assessment and perception of risk in human communities.
ORGANIZZATORI: Global Governance Institute,Institute for European Studies, Vesalius College - TIPOLOGIA: Training Course - DATA: 01 Sep 2013 - 01 Jun 2014 - LUOGO: Belgium (Brussels)
The Executive Course in Global Risk Analysis & Crisis Management – jointly organized by Vesalius College and the Institute for European Studies of the Free University of Brussels (VUB) and the Global Governance Institute (GGI) - provides participants with unique insights and fundamental skills required for mastering the field of global risk analysis, early warning and the management of major man-made and natural disasters.
DATORE: Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) - LUOGO: Belgium (Brussels) - SCADENZA BANDO: 20 Mar 2013
Applications are invited for a PhD fellowship under supervision of Professor Debby Guha-Sapir, Director of the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (www.cred.be), and in collaboration with the CRED team.The project will include the conceptual design and implementation of a case study in “health preparedness and heat wave response plans among selected European countries” that will provide the primary materials for the thesis. The candidate will build on the framing and methodological approach of resilience developed by ongoing FP7 projects (e.g. emBRACE). This will be further developed for application in research on risk assessment and multi-sectorial partnerships.
Disaster Studies Wageningen studies how disasters and conflicts affect people and transform societies, and in turn, how disasters and conflicts are socially and historically produced. Special attention is given to the role and perspectives of the actors involved, whether at the local or the global level, and the analysis of intervention policy and practice.
The 2013/2014 edition of the Risk and Emergency Management (REM) curriculum of the PhD Programme in Understanding and Managing Extremes (UME) is being offered by the UME Graduate School of the IUSS Pavia to train graduates and professionals in the assessment, mitigation and management of extreme events, with a particular focus on those arising from natural hazards. The unique characteristics of the programme include the broad, interdisciplinary curriculum that includes topics of statistics and probability, law, economics, resource management, natural hazards and risk, finance, insurance, sociology, communication, psychology, public health and medicine, and the innovative teaching structure which allows renowned lecturers from around the world to make up the teaching body.
