Dan Lewis of UN Habitat on Disaster Management

By November 25, 2011 Blog, Featured

One of our latest guest professor duos, Dan Lewis and Estaban León of UN Habitat’s Disaster and Risk Management Branch based in Nairobi, Kenya, led a workshop with our students exploring dimensions of new thinking addressing urban-based crisis prevention and response. By placing the students in real-life situations in crisis such as Pakistan and Haiti, Dan introduced them to the international humanitarian response system, post-crisis shelter and housing issues and a better understanding of good and bad practice within humanitarian response.
