Program Overview

We have been witnesses to beleaguering disasters and crises in the first quarter of 2020 – ones that have brought significant changes and implications to Asian societies and industries. From the US-Iran tensions, Taal Volcano eruption in the Philippines, the unfortunate plane crash in NAIA, through the current global crisis brought by COVID-19, these events present a challenge to policy makers from both private and public sectors in understanding disaster resilience and formulating active measures to ensure continuity of business and society as a whole.

The SDRMLP puts emphasis on the management and leadership aspects that will enable participants to (i) analyze and evaluate considerations and implications of disasters and crises, (ii) design strategic interventions and develop implementable plans, and (iii) manage and mobilize diverse functions, teams and skills for results. The program is designed to enhance the participants’ problem-solving, decision-making, and team-mobilization skills especially in volatile or extreme contexts and conditions.
