THE SPECIFICS: Disasters and development

The following guide is designed as an aid to the presentation of the module on "Disasters and Development". Although the overheads provided and the cues to the presentation are a complete set, they are really only a starting point for your presentation.

If your available time is less than 3 hours for the full presentation, you will have to decide which points you will cover and those which you will not address. If your personal experience has given you additional insights or illustrations of the points presented, integrate them into your presentation. You may want to edit out, or add overheads to the presentation.

Similarly, you must know your audience and their needs in order to make the presentation pertinent to the group. If the information is available early enough, you can alter the material to suit the particular needs of the trainees. Remember, the guide is for a "generic" presentation on this topic, and your input can help to "bring the information home" to the participants.

Materials you will need

All of the usual items required for any presentation are listed under the first part of this guide: "The Basics". Some additional items particular to this module are as follows:

· Copies of the training module "Disasters and Development". You may prefer to distribute these at the end of the session in order to keep the group more focused on the presentation.

· A copy of the UNDP/UNDRO Disaster Management Manual

· Copies of other illustrative documents you may have access to (World Bank guidelines for emergency lending, for example)

· Copies of "An Overview of Disaster Management" module

The Presentation

This presentation is based on a total of three hours.
