Course on Disaster Risk Reduction
In a world where both natural and man-made disasters are affecting us with alarming frequency, the concepts of disaster preparedness and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) are top of the list of priorities of an increasing number of countries in Asia.
DDR is a systematic approach to identify, assess and mitigate the risk of disaster. It aims to reduce socio-economic vulnerability to disaster as well as dealing with the environmental and other hazards that trigger them. DRR is not a one-off activity but instead an integral part of the way organisations do their work. DRR is wide-ranging; its scope is much broader and deeper than crisis management.
This programme addresses the challenges of assessing hazards, vulnerability and resilience and maximizing community engagement to transform information gathered into a professional plan aligned with Government and other agencies.
The training will be conducted using a mixture of theory and practical applications, introducing a range of interactive training methods such as group discussions, presentations and practical exercises.
