Multi-Hazard risk assessment Training

INTRODUCTION


This course deals with the procedures to collect, analyze and evaluate spatial information for risk assessment from natural and human-induced hazards (such as geological hazard, hydro-meteorological hazards, environmental hazards and technological hazards). The course will guide you through the entire process of risk assessment, on the basis of a case study of a city exposed to multiple hazards, in a developing country (Risk City).  Also a number of case studies are used from Europe (Italy, France), China, and Georgia. 

TRAINING OBJECTIVES


  • understand the concepts of hazard assessment, elements at risk mapping, vulnerability assessment, and risk assessment;
  • formulate the spatial data requirements for risk assessment; 
  • generate an elements at risk data base using GIS;
  • formulate the requirements of hazard data and methods;
  • apply various methods for vulnerability assessment;
  • generate risk maps using qualitative and quantitative methods;
  • have insight in how a risk assessment could be carried out in your own situation; 

DURATION


8 Days
