Mode of Delivery:
The occurrence of any kind of disaster leads to devastating consequences. Disasters may lead to death, injuries, destruction of properties, diseases, mass displacements, loss of infrastructure and social & economic disruption. According to UNDRR, the onset of disasters between 1998-2017 led to the death of 1.3 million people while affecting a population of 4.4 billion people across the globe. Geophysical events such as tsunamis, earthquakes, cyclones, floods, landslides, droughts as well as man-made disasters such as water pollution, disease epidemics and urban fires were responsible for most fatalities.
It might be hard to prevent a hazard from occurring but through the use of Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) skills, a hazard can be prevented from turning into a disaster. This would also help in mitigating its impacts by increasing resilience among the affected communities.
Undertaking a professional course in DRRM prepared by Humanitarian Global will help you develop in-depth knowledge in this professional area.
