Do you know how to effectively future-proof the disaster recovery projects you’re working on?

Is your organisation ready to effectively assist people and businesses to survive a post-disaster situation, and to future-proof them against that disaster risk?

Can your organisation successfully deliver according to the Sendai Framework, highlighted in the UN World conference on disaster risk reduction held in Sendai in March 2015?

UCL is pleased to announce a new one-day course that will help you do just that.

UCL’s Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction (IRDR) is a cross-disciplinary group of experts bringing together the wealth of knowledge and research in risk and disaster recovery.

Covering areas such as project management and the built environment, it will help you enable your organisation to successfully plan and deliver complex, forward-looking reconstruction and retrofit after a major disruptive incident.

Discover the latest research and thinking from around the world from experts who have first-hand experience with major international and domestic disaster reconstruction and retrofit (such as earthquakes, floods and landslides).
