IFRC - TISS Partnership
The International Federation of Red Cross and Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Tata Institute for Social Sciences (TISS) have established an online Certificate Programme in Disaster Management to address the existing practice-knowledge gaps, by developing humanitarian professionals with the right blend of academic and practical approaches, to reduce vulnerabilities and risks to hazards while developing ways of building the resilience of nations and communities to disasters. The course positions the IFRC with TISS in an innovative partnership to collaborate in evolving new areas in the realm of Disaster Management. The collaboration started in 2012 with the Online Certificate Programme in Disaster Management. In this decade long journey, we have had nearly 400 working professionals from more than 90 countries in the world, enrolled in the programme.
