Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC)

Mon, Jul 20 - Fri, Jul 31 2015

The fundamental principle of community-based disaster risk reduction (CBDRR) involves the development of bottom-up processes arising from the communities themselves. Development is based on the community's specific needs and its aspirations for safety, and appropriate actions to address these. In above context, ADPC realizes CBDRR is a significant principle to reduce the disaster risk. Therefore, ADPC is pleased to announce the 24th Regional Training Course on Community-Based Disaster Risk Reduction to be held from July 20-31, 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand.
