At the end of the course, the students will:
1.1. build appropriate models for equitable facility location and resource allocation problems under uncertainty.
1.2. build appropriate models for post-disaster debris management problems.
1.3. build appropriate models for relief commodity (e.g., donated blood, food) distribution.
2.1. solve equitable facility location and resource allocation problems under uncertainty using appropriate approaches.
2.2. solve post-disaster debris management problems using appropriate approaches.
2.3. solve relief commodity (e.g., donated blood, food) distribution problems using appropriate approaches.
3.1. understand the relevance of each problem with regard to the type, timeline and intensity of the disaster or long term issue.
3.2. use decision support tools for donated breast milk distribution, malaria intervention and debris removal.
