The Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre (DRMKC) and the Cooperation Network of Risk, Safety and Security studies (CONRIS) share a common goal: to provide (future) disaster risk management professionals with international, state of the art, evidence based knowledge about disaster risk management which should contribute to the quality of disaster risk management practices. The Disaster Risk Management Training is integrated part of study programme Safety&Security Studies, international semester ‘crisis&disaster management’.
Main objective of the training is that students understand the main concepts of disaster risk management, from understanding the risk to communication and management; also take into account possible future challenges. The training consists of four training days. Next to (online) presentations and discussions about core principles of disaster risks management Saxion students will zoom in and apply the information to specific crisis types, e.g. extreme weather events. This will be done in group work. On the last day, the training will be concluded by poster presentations and an evaluation of the training.
External students and professionals can join the presentations online.
The training will take place from 27 Feburary – 1 March 2024.
