About Graduate Certificate in Disaster Risk Reduction at University of Newcastle, Australia

This program is delivered through CIFAL Newcastle, a United Nations training centre with a focus on disaster resilience and sustainable development, which is hosted at the University of Newcastle. The United Nations has partnered with the University to develop the Graduate Certificate in Disaster Risk Reduction. The program provides graduates with the knowledge to manage the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) process across all sectors of society.

Students of the program engage fundamental disaster risk concepts, and receive training in the use of the most globally adopted DRR tools and protocols, some of these through direct engagement with UNITAR and UNDRR resources. UNDRR is the UN agency with responsibility to foster the change needed to meet the recommendations of the Sendai framework. Graduates will be capable of conducting disaster risk evaluations, and guiding the subsequent development of disaster risk mitigation and management strategies for the organisation in which they work.

If you work in a role that relates to risk assessment and management and business continuity, or if you are considering this as a career path, then the Graduate Certificate in Disaster Risk Reduction is relevant to you. All industries are impacted by disasters and must implement strategies to manage risk, speed up recovery and improve resilience. Even if you are experienced in this field, this program can increase your professional capacity in relation to the latest Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) practices.
