  • Course on Disaster Management

    Plan 471: Natural Hazards and Disaster Management

    A three credit course, 42 contact hours Offered in the second semester of final year An optional course

    Objectives of the Course

    Understand what constitutes a disaster and the fundamental characteristics of different disaster events and their impacts on society and development

    Understand the different stages of DM, hazard assessment and vulnerability analysis process

    Attain a working knowledge of risk assessment and risk mapping

    Attain an understanding of the disaster management process in Bangladesh

  • Syllabus of the Course

    Part A Meaning of Hazards and Disaster, Types of

    hazards Assessment of Hazards, Vulnerability Analysis Risk Assessment, Risk Mapping Analysis of disaster related behaviour pattern Peoples awareness, perception, understanding of

    hazard threats and response to danger

    Syllabus of the Course

    Part B Disaster management planning: basic issues. Phases of disaster management, general and

    specific criteria governing steps in each phase Links between development planning and DM

    planning Social consideration and peoples participation in

    DM planing Institutional Framework for DM in Bangladesh

  • Modification of the Course (Proposed)

    Current course involves 42 hours of lectures and no practice sessions.

    We propose to divide the 3-credit course into 2 credits of theory and 1 credit of sessional, i.e., 28 hours of lectures and 28 hours of practice sessions.

    Case Study: Objectives

    Application of concepts and theories learnt in the Disaster Management course.

    Developing a more concrete understanding of the concepts of hazards, vulnerability and risk.

    Developing skills in risk assessment techniques.

  • Case Study: Objectives

    Developing skills in GIS is NOT an objective in this course, because we have separate courses on GIS and RS.

    Developing the Case Study

    2 Strategies: Modify and stucture either of the two

    studies presented earlier in this workshop: Delineation of Flood Zones in Dhaka City GIS-based Method for Estimating Emergency

    Flood Relief Requirements

    Develop an entirely new case study

  • Developing the Case Study

    We have decided to use the data collected for the earlier studies for developing the case studies.

    We have also decided to develop case studies from both the earlier studies since we will have 28 hours of lab sessions.

    Developing the Case Study

    With the data collected and digitized for the flood area delineation study, develop a case study for Dhaka City. This would be the CASITA project case study.

    For the study for estimating the required amount of emergency relief supplies, use hypothetical damage ratios to further develop the methodology.

  • Case Study(Tentative)

    Assessing the Vulnerability of Critical Installations in Dhaka City

    Critical Installations: Facilities and utility lines that are important for disaster management, especially in the immediate post disaster stage.

    Examples: Hospitals, fire stations, power stations, water mains, power lines etc.

    Case Study(Tentative)
