Global trends indicate that disasters especially in Africa are on the increase and their effects can erode years of development gains at different levels. Disasters have led to serious human, economic and environmental losses and if not adequately addressed they can render organizations, communities and families dysfunctional. These disasters are naturally triggered while others are induced by human action. Examples of these disasters commonly experienced in Uganda and most of the African countries are earthquakes, landslides, floods, construction accidents, fires, wars, drought and pests. This course is focused on the providing and equipping necessary and useful fundamental knowledge and skills in disaster risk management to community development workers and other stakeholders at different levels of community development management.
