Disaster Resilience Leadership Program

Leadership makes a tremendous difference in disaster preparation, response, and recovery. In times of extreme adversity, strong and effective leadership can prevent a disaster altogether or mitigate its impact, whereas weak and ineffective leadership can exacerbate the situation, with devastating life or death consequences. Despite this importance, investments to build human capacity and sustain a systematic approach to strengthening leadership capacity that promotes resilient outcomes have not kept pace with increasing global disaster risks, and in many of the most vulnerable communities, these efforts have been missing altogether.

Tulane University’s Disaster Resilience Leadership Academy (TU/DRLA), in partnership with local universities and disaster risk management stakeholders in countries across Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and the Caribbean, have developed the Disaster Resilience Leadership (DRL) Program to address these leadership gaps.
