This course provides an advanced understanding in the assessment of dynamic risk for multi-hazards of hydro-meteorological and geological origin (e.g. landslides, floods, earthquakes). It teaches how to conduct a quantitative multi-hazard risk assessment, how the risk components (hazards, elements-at-risk and vulnerability) can be obtained using spatial data, and how spatial-temporal information on changing risk can be used in decision making for disaster risk reduction.
Course activities include hazard modeling for different risk reduction alternatives, cost-benefit analysis, and the use of spatial decision support systems. Additional attention is for future risk scenarios in terms of climate change, land use change and population change.
The course is targeted at professional workers and researchers with affinity for risk reduction planning and working experience in using GIS and spatial data. It provides an interesting opportunity to exchange ideas with students from many parts of the world.
