    The key Disaster Risk Management (DRM) diagram we focus in on in Module 1 is the Disaster Risk Management Cycle (DRMC). Whilst this illustrates the three DRMC stages (Normal/DRR, Emergency Response, Recovery), it highlights the key initiatives carried out in just the latter two (Emergency Response/Recovery). Following our Zoom discussion this past Wednesday, I’m seeing if our designer can just tidy up this diagram a bit. Note that we used the DRMC in both the bushfire articles, and it can be used in discusing Emergency Response & Recovery for cyclones/hurricanes/typhoons. We’ll be looking at the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) diagram in Module 3.


    I can get this started.
    I have absolutely no experience with disasters! I had some minor involvement with my former employers covid response and found it very reactive and about a month behind where it should have been As they were not able to recognise the risk and thought it wouldn’t affect them.
    I look after our initial climate risk work so have some idea of the increasing hazards related to CC and keep an eye of risk reporting (such as those from the world economic forum) but these are very broad and not specific to events or responses.
    I’m really excited to hear some stories from my fellow students!


    You will note that we have modified the DRMC as a result of last week’s Zoom, and that this modified version can be seen at https://www.torqaid.com/resources.,
