UPCD601L-01C Social Vulnerability to Disasters (with Adenrele A Awotona)

By means of a multi-disciplinary approach, this course introduces students to an understanding of hazards and disasters grounded in social vulnerability analysis. It examines different theories of social vulnerabilities as well as the historical, geographical, social, and cultural factors and conditions that put people differentially at risk before, during, and after disasters. In particular, the course focuses on global, national, regional, and local patterns of development. Students will explore how vulnerable social groups are affected by and cope with various types of disasters, and strategies for community-based mitigation engaging those most at risk. CRSCAD 601L and UPCD 601L are the same course.
