About

Overview

The Disaster and Emergency Management (Blended) program at the Royal Roads University explores the theoretical foundations of disaster and emergency management as a growing field of practice and study. 

The program emphasizes an integrated and holistic approach to disaster and emergency management built on the understanding that disasters are more than hazards, and are products of the inter-relationship and mutual construction of the environmental, social, economic, and political spheres. 

This approach supports the notion that disaster and emergency management processes and practices can and should contribute to risk reduction, community resilience and sustainable communities.
