Short Courses

Disaster Risk Financing 

Financial protection policies and instruments support governments in becoming effective risk managers and help protect lives, livelihoods, investments and development progress.  Early action supported by pre-planned financing not only saves lives but also reduces costs, with every R1 spent on early action saving up to R5 in late response financing.The Research Alliance for Disaster and Risk Reduction (RADAR) and Stellenbosch University Business School (USB) are pleased to announce a certified one-day online short course on the Fundamentals of Disaster Risk Financing.


The course aims to introduce participants to key concepts and instruments used in financing of disaster shocks. It will also provide a forum for participants to engage with best practice in this area.


By the end of the course participants will be equipped to reflect on lessons for managing disaster risk and disaster financing within their own contextual environments. Participants will also understand how to advocate for disaster risk management and its financing with key stakeholders.

The programme will run on 14 August 2020. It costs R 1 350, all inclusive.
