Disasters and Development

Development has a significant influence on the way in which hazards impact on people, and the occurrence of disasters alters the scope of development. This paper identifies the value of focusing on disaster reduction and sustainable development as part of the same agenda. Addressing the importance of approaching and applying a disaster and development perspective in an integrated way, this paper engages with some of the major crises of the contemporary era. Through lectures and methods-based discussion, students evaluate strategies of sustainable development and disaster risk reduction.
