Community Participation in Emergency Response 9
April 23 @ 8:00 am - April 27 @ 5:00 pm$1,600
The humanitarian aid community must cooperate with the national authorities to build or rehabilitate the basic infrastructure needed for access, shelter and the provision of life-sustaining services. This work often has to be carried out on an emergency basis in far from ideal circumstances. This course offers advanced knowledge of the technical requirements for the infrastructure needed in humanitarian emergencies. Students are exposed to vital managerial decisions they must consider as they supervise teams of technical experts. After implementing immediate infrastructure needs, humanitarian agencies are responsible for providing a range of basic services until either the service is no longer required, the population has returned to its place of origin, or governmental agencies develop the means and manpower to provide the services. This phase is often known as “care and maintenance”. Students acquire a clear understanding of the implications of these “open ended commitments” to a population and potential exit strategies.
This course is required for the IDOHA module of the MIHA.
About the IIHA:
The Institute of International Humanitarian Affairs (IIHA) at Fordham University offers humanitarian training courses in various locations around the world. With the creation of a Master’s in Humanitarian Action (MIHA), the Institute offers a flexible yet academically rigorous training model for aid practitioners looking to further their knowledge and skills in the humanitarian sector.
For those who wish to receive academic credit, the tuition for each short course is $1,600 USD*. There is an additional student fee of $293 USD charged once per semester. Thus, the total cost for one short course would be $1,893 USD and if a second course is taken within the same semester, the cost of the second course would be $1,600 USD. Upon successful completion of each course, participants are entitled to 2 academic credits through Fordham University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS). For those who do not wish to receive formal academic credit, the tuition for each short course has been reduced to $915 USD. Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance for the program but will receive no formal academic recognition. The choice to receive academic credit must be made before the course begins and cannot be upgraded at a later date. The program cost includes the tuition and coffee breaks. It does not include accommodation, meals, or transportation costs.
All of the IIHA short courses can be taken for academic credit and counted towards Fordham University’s Master’s in International Humanitarian Action (MIHA) or taken individually, independent from the MIHA at a reduced cost.
