Description of the Programme:

 

Course details

The emerging discipline of disaster studies is largely shaped by perspectives and debates in the humanitarian sector including both practice and research. Though the focus has been gradually shifting from relief and response to long term recovery and disaster risk reduction, very few academic programmes address the long term recovery dimensions extensively. Thus there is a dearth of trained professional who could examine, conceptualize and deliver the key recovery interventions that is comprehensive and context specific. Economic, Housing and Livelihood recovery are key component of disaster recovery among others and are among the upcoming sectors in the context of disasters, where lots remain unexplored and untouched.

The current diploma programme emerges from the above identified gap, especially in the post Earthquake context of Nepal. A diploma programme which equips young graduates, from disaster hit communities, with appropriate inputs to be able to examine, conceptualize and deliver on Livelihood and Social Entrepreneurship initiatives among the disaster affected communities.
