Overview The course aims to improve the understanding of cause and effect relationships to offer options to help reduce risks and vulnerabilities and increase resilience. The course on Disaster Risk Reduction supports policy and decision makers with authoritative research and information. The course leads in the capacity building activities in broad interdisciplinary fields of Risk and vulnerability. It explores the threats that environmental degradation, unsuitable lands use practices, natural and manmade hazards pose to human. Course Description Disaster Risk Reduction enumerates a framework that facilitates reducing disaster risks and mitigating the impacts .Administrators in the present century have access to large amounts of information. The subject is broad which covers almost all the aspects of disaster and risk reduction. The issues are linked with each other and there is no water tight compartmentalization in the same. A major issue is how to approach the subject in a synchronized manner so as to make the best use of the available information to make better decisions. It is from this perspective of informed decision making that this course is designed. The course takes a global perspective on disaster and risk reduction. Objectives The growing frequency and magnitude of extreme environmental events (such as floods, landslide and drought) have intensified interest in these events, in particular regarding the level of risk they pose in different locations, the vulnerability of communities and their response capabilities. At the successful completion of the course, the participants would be able to: demonstrate understanding of the concept of capacity and what constitutes capacity for disaster risk management. demonstrate understanding of key factors for capacity development to promote societal and community resilience. demonstrate ability to assess capacity development needs and plan, implement and evaluate capacity development projects. demonstrate the ability to work constructively in a team and communicate effectively with people from other disciplines demonstrate ability to reflect upon ones approach to and role in the development of somebody elses capacities. demonstrate ability to approach the field of capacity development for disaster risk management in a scientific manner.

Concept Note for the Course International Relations or International Politics is a narrative which is largely recognized as the last chapter in a stereotypical Political Science Book. It is not so and since the inception of the IR chair in the University of Absywrth in United States, International Relations has developed as an independent and a full fledged discipline emerging out of the shadows of other traditional disciplines. It not only suggests a reading of interactions and the iterative games between the various states but also a deft understanding of the relationships which have been newly forged between the myriad transnational actors in the age of globalization and convergence. Also, intertwined with the lore of International Politics is the notion of international organizations which emerges as a sub set of IR keeping in view the needs of International Administration. As the nations administration and the domestic procedures of governance are impacted upon by the kind of international and bilateral relations which a nation sustains with the prominent great powers and its South Asia neighbors, the bilateral interaction with nations and International administrative mechanisms casts a shadow upon the administration and the Governance of the nation, too. Thus an understanding of the relations which India enjoys with US and Iran, for instance, can, in a better way, enable the Petroleum and Natural resources ministry to understand the policy which India can make and implement in the form of inviting imports from Iran or not. The foreign aid disbursed through INGOs and the United Nations also has a telling interaction with aids distribution and general governance in the nation. Also, the high tide of IPE also has a telling influence upon the notion of economic policy of the nation. Thus, International Politics and Governance cannot be viewed in separation with each other and the interface is well recognized in several Western Universities such as the Fletcher School of Governance and the Kennedys School of Governance in United States. Objectives: The course attempts to evolve a policy understanding of the theoretical and pragmatic percepts of International Politics as an adjunct between the ideational percepts of World Politics and its implementary part in the real world. The course seeks to acclimatize the participants with the fundamental and advanced percepts of International Politics and Foreign Relations. The course seeks to sensitize the participants with the significance of bilateral relations of India with other significant players in the South Asian region and the larger international system. The course strives for a holistic comprehension of the impact which decision making at the foreign policy level has on the Governance in the domestic realm of the
