Publication Overview/Description

The revision and updating of the Disaster Management Course went through a rigorous process
from December 2011 to September 2012 with a series of consultations. The process required
government and development partners’ engagement over one year to revise the course and build
upon earlier courses. Togeher with government trainers and the Relief and Resettlement Depart-
ment, this process was made possible.

In total, 6 consultations took place with government agencies, UN Agencies and NGOs; 5 consultations with Technical Working Group members comprising UN Agencies and NGOs;
and more than 12 one-to-one consultations with government departments were held.
