There is a limited reflection on knowledge of community responses and social behaviour in addressing environmental and disaster related challenges faced by a city. The course will emphasize on the importance of understanding the natural, societal, economical, infrastructural and technological risks arising out of climate change impacts and disasters. The focus would be on role of various formal and informal institutions in building up resilience of the city. The participants would be exposed to:new perspectives on preparedness and disruption managements for the challenges; various methods to capture the level of exposure to the different types of aforementioned risks and; the community and institutional responses towards these risks. The methods would include assessing risks both at various spatial scale as well as institutional scale.
The wider dissemination of the development programme would help in sensitizing the professionals for inclusion of the risks for various kinds of shocks and stresses. This would further help professionals in informed decision making through capturing responses of community for the development of more resilient city, with regard to the ability to manage challenges more effectively.
