Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Diagrammatic Framework

The heart of TorqAid’s DRM consultancy and training are the seven key diagrams embedded in the DRM Diagrammatic Framework Download

Four of these diagrams (and two variations of these), are TorqAid designs, these being the Disaster Risk Management Cycle (DRMC), the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) diagram; the DRM Planning diagram; and the Project Management Cycle (PMC).  These diagrams have been developed over the past 15 years, with modifications coming from DRM & PPM students. All of these TorqAid designs (in jpeg version) are illustrated below, and have been updated for 2018. The other three diagrams included in the DRM diagrammatic article are the risk matrix; the ISO 31000 risk management process; and the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS).

Variations of these diagrams have been produced in different languages, and there is the opportunity for clients to both brand these diagrams with their agency logo, and/or have them translated into other languages.  Inquire from Chris (see Contact Page) for details and costs of this service.
