The TorqAid Toolkit is updated every three months (latest January-March 2023).  It is a comprehensive compendium of resources for both the global development and humanitarian practioner, as well as for involved secondary/tertiary students and interested individuals. The Toolkit consists of two main sections, one relating to Training (see Training section of this website for details), and the other to key articles. Three of these articles are reproduced on this page.

  • Humanitarian & Development Bibliography

  • Humanitarian and Development Agencies Directory.

Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Diagrammatic Framework

The heart of TorqAid’s DRM consultancy and training are the key illustrations embedded in the DRM Diagrammatic Framework article 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).  All the TorqAid diagrams have been developed over the past 20 years, with modification comments coming from workshop students. All of these TorqAid designs (in jpeg version) are illustrated below, and have been updated for 2023.

The diagrams below can be used (for non-commercial purposes) free of charge. If individuals or agencies would like to ‘badge’ them using their own logos, then please contact TorqAid to discuss licensing agreements.
