Background

Damage and Reconstruction Needs Assessment (DRNA) is a specialization course under the Natural Disaster Risk Management Program that offers a set of diagnostic tools to measure the type and extent of damage and losses caused by a specific disaster, identify immediate recovery and longer-term reconstruction needs, and determine the economic and financial implications of the event. This can be used immediately after the emergency stage to assess the direct and indirect effects of a catastrophic event, and its implications for the social well-being and economic performance of the affected area.

Course contents


The course consists of an introduction, the basic learning materials and a discussion forum to facilitate the learning via interaction with program faculty. The introduction includes a short course description, review of learning objectives and outcomes, and a summary of main issues. The basic learning materials consist of 30 to 35-minute slide show presentations, case studies and readings, quizzes, a final exam and an end of the course project.
