This is Part II of the Crisis Management and Disaster Response (CMDR) course series; the two parts are sequential, and Part I must be taken before Part II. These courses provide students with a study of the CMDR field in an international context, drawing extensively on NATO resources. Part II builds upon Part I by expanding on aspects of Emergency Management and addressing Disaster Management. This entails a study of the fundamentals of Disaster Response, as well as a basic comprehension of the perspectives, planning, and partnerships that shape this response. It also examines the role of civilian (e.g. the UN and EU) and military (e.g. NATO) actors in disaster response, as well as considerations such as climate change and gender. This course series is applicable to a wide array of professional fields, from emergency and disaster management to governmental (e.g. military and diplomatic), inter-governmental, and non-governmental service. Additional instruction will be provided by personnel from the NATO Center of Excellence in Sofia, Bulgaria who have extensive expertise and experience in various aspects of the CMDR field.
