"It's All About Making The Right Choices At The Right Time"

What is this course about?
In a world where both natural and man-made disasters are affecting us with alarming frequency, the concepts of disaster preparedness and disaster risk reduction (DRR) are top of the list of priorities of an increasing number of countries in Asia. Disaster Risk Reduction is a systematic approach to identify, assess and mitigate the risk of disaster. DRR aims to reduce socio-economic vulnerability to disaster as well as dealing with the environmental and other hazards that trigger them. DRR is not a one-off activity but instead an integral part of the way organisations do their work. DRR is wide-ranging; its scope is much broader and deeper than crisis management. This programme addresses the challenges of assessing hazards, vulnerability and resilience and maximizing community engagement to transform information gathered into a professional plan aligned with Government and other agencies.

This includes (future) project managers/coordinators, portfolio managers, desk officers and programme officers from development related organizations including donors, government departments, civil society groups, (I)NGO’s and charities.

Annually, these foundations give billions of dollars to non-American nonprofits. Where do these international grants go? What subject areas are most popular? What are the conditions under which they are given out? And most importantly: how can your nonprofit enter this market successfully? This morning session is provided by Eelco Keij, founder and director of KeyLance Consultancy LLC.
