The second Jean Monnet Module “Disaster Risk Management” within the project “Promoting CCA and DRM in the framework of EU Integration” was completed successfully after 15 intensive weeks. The module offers students extensive knowledge in the field of preparedness, response and management of Disasters, as well as offers a thorough review on financial strategies for addressing disaster risk.
Students were actively engaged in the achievement of the module goals, through class projects and homework. Though group projects, they produced five contingency plans for different assesses or areas at risk, which were based on EU frameworks for Disaster Risk Reduction. The module gained very good feedback through course valuation at the end of the semester.
