Training Course on Disaster Risk Reduction

Mon, Jun 8 - Fri, Jun 12 2015

Disaster risk reduction (DRR) skills are fundamental to the process of increasing awareness on natural hazards and disaster risk reduction to key stakeholders with knowledge on disaster management to empower the actors to support their organizations in developing disaster resilient programs and projects. 

The workshop offers intensive training that will cover the fundamental concepts and tools for DRR. People-centered early warning systems empower communities to prepare for and confront the power of natural hazards and measurement of the systems in terms of lives saved and reduction in losses, which is directly related to the execution of an anticipated response by the people and institutions once a warning is issued. 


This course is intended for audiences working in governments, funding agencies, and research and non-government organizations for emergency response and other development programmes.
