Disasters are part of life.  Currently, the world is grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic, however, there are many other hazards and ongoing disasters that equally demand our attention as a global community.

In anticipation of facing the ongoing pandemic and future disasters, it is critical that we engage to protect our lives and livelihoods by adopting and operationalizing systems thinking.

The goal of this webinar is to engage participants in discussions around DCM  and explore the need for future exchanges and growth.

Webinar Details

  • Series: Navigating the Pandemic

  • Time and Date: Tuesday, 11 August | 6.00 pm – 7.30 pm (GMT+3)

Topics Covered

During the webinar Drs. Kiragu and Mwarumba will review and integrate disaster case studies with relevant Disaster Cycle Management (DCM) frameworks, practice, policy, and research.

Historically, community, public-private institutions and governments have emphasized disaster response but evidently the entire DCM approach is equally relevant. The DCM approach emphasizes as an imperative the consideration of mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery at Micro, Meso and Macro levels.

This webinar will:

  • stimulate thought and agency toward eliminating or minimizing disaster impact
  • focus on socially vulnerable populations
  • emphasize personal preparedness planning
  • leverage social capitals.

  • Medical, Public Health, Disaster Management, First responder professionals
  • Business Owners – small medium and large.
  • Policymakers.
