Over the past 20 years or so, TorqAid has worked with its students to develop a diagrammatic framework of four key diagrams, which can be used to clearly illustrate key aspects of all disasters. This material is included in an article entitled a ‘Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Diagrammatic Framework’, with this article being accessed here.Download
There is key information here for both the global humanitarian/development practitioner, and secondary/tertiary student. The material includes:
- Four key TorqAid diagrams, namely the Disaster Risk Management Cycle (DRMC); the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) diagram; the DRM Planning diagram; and the Project Management Cycle (PMC). There are also variants of the DRMC and DRR relating to slow-onset hazards such as drought.
- Applications of the DRMC diagram to both the 2019/2020 Australian bushfires, and the 2020-2022 Covid-19 pandemic
The DRM framework is also the basis for much of the material for the 10 topics covered in both the Participatory Disaster Risk Management (PDRM) and Short Course (SC) programs. Details of these can be accessed here:Download
