The Course

We are all studying Disasters, Adaptation and Development at King’s College London.

The course “takes a social development perspective and includes human vulnerability and response to natural and technological hazards and to climate change. Access to a broad range of modules. Leads to careers in research and policy development on disaster risk management and development programming for adaptation.”

The course is run by Professor Mark Pelling and Dr Daanish Mustafa, more information can be found here.

Through the course we have acquired a range of knowledge and between us have studied modules on:

  • Disasters and Development
  • Water Resources and Policy
  • Community, Vulnerability and Disaster
  • Environment, Livelihoods and Development in the ‘South’
  • Gender, Culture and Development
In addition to this we write a dissertation based on primary data that we ourselves have collected. Several of our blog writers are planning on undertaking research overseas on research placements set up through the course.
