The e-learning courses on risk analysis aim to equip participants with a deep understanding and practical skills in applying a risk-sensitive approach within the Humanitarian Programme Cycle and the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework processes. Participants who take the course will be able to define risk analysis concepts, assess various risk types, and evaluate strategies for strategic risk reduction planning. By identifying key actors and implementing crucial risk analysis methodologies, participants will be able to design tailored strategies and programs to effectively mitigate disaster risks, considering diverse stakeholder perspectives and local contexts.
