Man-made crises, natural disasters and humanitarian emergencies regularly create threatening challenges for domestic and international responders in Asia-Pacific nations. Large and complex crises require critical systems thinking and effective coordination over the event life cycle. Many ministries and society sectors may be involved, and when capacities are overwhelmed, international actors require effective coordination.

This annual five-week course emphasizes critical thinking skills and practice as it explores the many aspects of preparedness and response. Crisis capacity is promoted through a strong foundation in critical thinking, strategic assessment, leadership, communication, negotiation and future thinking. Course participants analyze problems, explore factors that shape effective crisis management and develop comprehensive strategies and approaches. The knowledge of seasoned participants with experience in crisis management is incorporated to provide national narratives and learning from the field. MASL: SAP0000
