Disaster and Emergency Management focuses on preventing, preparing for, responding to, and recovering from specific hazard events. However, its standardized approach often fails to address isolated, marginalized, or culturally distinct communities. Participants in the course will be able to discuss the application of traditional disaster recovery steps in distinct communities and historic cases of disaster recovery. This course focuses on Indigenous and other rural/remote communities and addresses sub-groups within communities that are marginalized due to race, religion, and/or social norms.
With the knowledge gained in this course, you will be able to examine emergency recovery strategies unique to distinct and/or geographically dispersed communities.
