This course provides students understanding regarding the environmentally critical projects and environmentally critical areas incorporated with natural hazards, climate change and related risks consideration as a fundamental first step in broader project scoping and the findings should be used to determine if disaster and/or climate change risks should be examined in further detail in other components of the project appraisal process. The course also covers understanding regarding systematic analysis of the potential disaster/climate risk-related consequences of a project via its impact on the environment that is included as a central component of the assessment process, especially in hazard-prone areas. Measures to address identified environmental issues, including disaster risk reduction/climate change adaptation (DRR/CCA) concerns is also part of this course.
