In early 2015 the United Nations oversaw the creation of the game-changing "Sendai Framework" in Japan – a global strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) for 2015-2030. The result is a challenge to organisations throughout civil society and the world over to alter how they address issues of hazard and vulnerability, and deal with risk.

In parallel with these events, the University of Newcastle and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) worked together in order to develop the Graduate Certificate in Disaster Risk Reduction, in order to provide graduates with the knowledge to manage the 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 resources.

Graduates will be able to identify hazards, vulnerability and the consequent level of risk faced by your organisation or community, you will also be able to develop evidence-based strategies to overcome them, thereby improving resilience into the future. 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.
