CEE 209B: Disaster Risk and International Development Seminar

The human and economic impacts of natural disasters are ever increasing and disproportionately affecting lower-income countries. In act there is mounting evidence that these ever more frequent shocks threaten to reverse development progress in low-income countries. This seminar course will explore the theory and practice of disaster risk reduction in international development contexts. Weekly readings (and occasional guest lectures) will cover key issues in development theory, a history of "a risk society", participation, human-centered planning, ethics in engineering, and other topics. The seminar will be structured through weekly readings, brief writing responses and group discussion.
