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.
In order to build the capacity of Development professionals who are actively engaged in the Development and Emergency response activities in governmental and non-governmental organizations, this one week course will provide hands-on training in DRR and the application of Knowledge to decision making in DRR planning and Management.
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 training will also address traditional views on early warning systems, and what it takes to transform them into efficient, people-centred systems. The workshop also presents a practical guide for using a geographic information system (GIS) to integrate, visualize, and analyze geographically-referenced data extracted from key data sets to facilitate DRR.
This course is intended for audiences working in governments, funding agencies, and research and non-government organizations for Emergency response and other Development programmes.
After the course, participants will be able to:
Understanding disaster risk reduction.
Insights into global and regional perspectives of hazards and disaster risk reduction
The process of Identifying, assessing and monitoring disaster risks and enhancing early warning
Disaster Preparedness, Early Warning and mitigation
Code of conduct in disaster response
Use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and GPS to gather data, collaborate and share information on DRR
Further information on registration and group tariffs can be found on the training website.
