Description: 

Urban migration, climate change and natural hazards pose some of the greatest unfolding challenges of the 21st century. The need for communities to recover from disasters in an increasingly urban and warmer world will provide new opportunities for practitioners to evolve urban disaster recovery strategies. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction highlight these challenges. This mini-course will examine these themes using case studies from recent disasters in Haiti, Chile, Japan, Nepal and the United States. Through this mini-course students will have an opportunity to achieve an introduction of organizations/institutions involved in disaster recovery, an introduction of the effects of urban migration and climate change for disaster recovery, and an introduction to emerging themes in disaster recovery.
