This course provides students understanding regarding the environmentally critical projects and areas incorporated with natural hazards, climate change, and related risk consideration as a fundamental first step in broader project scoping. 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 or 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, are also part of this course.
