The Comprehensive Disaster Risk Management Framework (CDRMF) is the introductory course of the EMI-GFDRR (Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery) NDRM web-based training package in disaster risk management. The course addresses basic questions such as “Why are disasters a development issue?” and “What are the fundamental components and processes of disaster risk management?” It also reviews the institutional arrangements and financing mechanisms of disaster risk management systems, and identifies the role of national and local actors in the processes related to risk assessment, mitigation and financing. This entry-level course targets all those who want to acquire fundamental knowledge on disaster risk management (DRM) including DRM professionals and general development practitioners. Participants will improve their competence, and will acquire the “DOs” and “DON’Ts” and how to raise awareness in and support for disaster risk reduction (DRR). The built -in learning tools of the course give an opportunity to participants to monitor their knowledge and learning progress.
