Training Course on GIS for Disaster Risk Management

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
Undefined

Geographic information systems (GIS) play a vital role in disaster risk assessment and management. They support planning, response and recovery efforts and improve situational awareness. Unplanned population growth and rapid urbanization combined with extreme climatic events are some of the challenges that increase the vulnerability of a community. To address these challenges there is need to create awareness among disaster managers regarding the usefulness of GIS in disaster risk management.

8th Regional Training Course On Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Reduction Into Development Process

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
Undefined

Disaster risk within a country has its roots in development decisions that do not adequately address disaster concerns, and the resulting disasters are coming at the cost of development and poverty reduction. By not considering disaster risk in development planning, new risks could be unintentionally created or existing ones exacerbated through investments in infrastructure and public services, and through improper planning and regulation.

COURSE OVERVIEW

The rapid population growth and urbanization combined with extreme climatic events are causing a swift increase in vulnerability of communities to hazardous events. Unplanned growth both in urban and non-urban areas calls for preparation to reduce the impact of disasters, and there is a great need to utilize disaster risk information in designing effective coping mechanisms.
