This subject is designed to respond to the growing challenge that natural and other disasters pose to organisations and individuals. It will provide individuals with insight into how to improve resilience at multiple different levels considering personal, community, organisational and at global levels. The subject itself also embeds the requirement to build skills in auditing and project design, fundamental skills for professionals working in management, logistics and other aligned professions. Indeed, any person working in a professional organisation may be exposed to emergencies, disasters or crises and this subject provides an introduction to principles, knowledge and skills that will be useful in responding to and recovering from these sorts of events. The subject also addresses a ‘wicked problem’ – specifically – we seek greater levels of resilience at times when the challenges to that resilience has also never been greater. By needing to consider and respond to this issue students will be supported to navigate complicated problems with unclear, even impossible solutions.
