Training Course on Disaster Risk Reduction

Mon, Aug 31 - Fri, Sep 4 2015

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.

Some of the learning objectives are the understanding of disaster risk reduction concepts and DRR conceptual frameworks and institutional mechanisms, the identification and understanding of the causes and impacts of various hazards locally, regionally and globally, and the identification of disaster risk reduction strategies and opportunities in programming. 

 

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