Disaster risk reduction for financial service providers: Promising practices for building resilience - Facilitator's guide and toolkit

Source(s):  SEEP Network

This guide and toolkit was developed for facilitators working with Financial Service Providers (FSPs), their clients and relevant stakeholders. Its aim is to promote promising practices related to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and spark changes in practices among FSPs, NGOs, government entities, humanitarian and development practitioners.

It is designed to:

  • share knowledge on global promising practices in DRR and allow for local knowledge/ experience-sharing and networking, and
  • to start or improve collaborative actions between FSPs, their clients and other key stakeholders.

The curriculum has five modules. Depending on the audience and the time available, these modules can be mixed and matched by the facilitators to create a custom experience. Sample workshop agendas are included in the toolkit.

The workshop is a mix of theoretical and practical exercises. It is based on the case studies, webinars, peer discussions and an online DRR resource library developed by the SEEP Network’s global DRR Program. It offers an overview of the state of the practice and is based on real-world experience and documented learning.

The workshop can be hosted by any organization or agency. A co-hosting approach between two organizations can help ensure diversity in the invitation list and build relationships across sectors. Hosts are responsible for finding a venue for the workshop, promoting the workshop, curating a list of attendees, sending invitations and tracking attendance. They will also offer input to on adjusting for context and tailoring the activities for the audience. Finally, hosts will take part in opening, closing, and evaluating the workshop.
