Featured course: EADP 4040 International Disasters

Every country, government, and society reduces vulnerability to hazards and copes with disasters differently. Led by the United Nations, international disaster risk reduction efforts have made moderate progress. However, in the absence of preparedness and mitigation activities, many countries focus primarily on a reactive approach to managing disasters. This method is not sustainable.

Students share experiences of EMDS summer internships

From Washington State, to Washington D.C., and half a world away to New Zealand, EADP students returned from several exciting internships this summer, as highlighted in recent course presentations. At the September 29, 2017 internship class, seven students recounted their fieldwork experiences. Several of the presenters acknowledged the value and pertinence of the classroom experiences they gained at UNT, when they had to “do it for real.”
