Khurshid Ahmad Mir

Abstract


Abstract:- Social work education is crucial in the development of professionals who are equipped to serve diverse populations and implement varying programs. It is meant to the graduates’ competence in the socio-economic environment. In particular, it should ensure that social workers are endowed with adequate competencies in disaster risk reduction and the training of individuals, groups, and communities in resilience to disasters. The aim of this paper is to establish whether students acquire knowledge and skills in disaster risk management while at the university. It was found that the possibility is high that they would graduate without adequate knowledge on the subject with regard to related protocols, tools, and instruments. It is therefore, crucial that social work education deliberately incorporates disaster risk reduction in its curriculum in Kashmir Valley.

Keywords:- Social Work, Disaster, and Disaster Risk Reduction.
