8th Regional Training Course on Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Reduction into Development Process (MDRD-8)

MAIN HOST(S): Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC)

Type: Training Course Date: 21 - 25 Aug 2017 Location: Thailand (Bangkok)

This course aims to enhance the understanding of mainstreaming disaster risk reduction (DRR) into the development planning processes through building the capacities of government officials, development partners and stakeholders to implement disaster resilient development.

The specific objectives of the course include:

  • Increasing awareness among participants on the need to mainstream disaster risk reduction into the development planning processes;
  • Enhancing the capacity of participants on "how to" mainstream disaster risk reduction concerns into the national, sub-national, and sectoral development planning processes;
  • Providing a platform for experience sharing, discussion and interactive professional exchange on mainstreaming disaster reduction in development.

Course Curriculum

Module 1: Introduction to disaster risk reduction 

The purpose of the first module is to provide participants with the basic knowledge on disaster risk reduction (DRR) that is required to support a detailed understanding of mainstreaming. The module will cover terminologies related to DRR, discuss the comprehensive link between disasters and development, and provide a basic outline on risk assessment and how to use risk information to guide development decisions.

Module 2: Mainstreaming disaster risk reduction into the development planning process 
This module will form the core of the training and will start by providing a detailed explanation of what is mainstreaming and provide a broad framework for mainstreaming DRR. The subsequent session will then aim to break down the development planning processes into key components and suggest the approaches for mainstreaming DRR into the respective component.

Module 3: Enabling environment for mainstreaming 
The final module will introduce actions required to initiate and sustain the process of mainstreaming DRR into development. Topics covered include advocacy, monitoring and evaluation for mainstreaming, and financing options for DRR.

Target Audience

The course is particularly useful for government officials responsible for disaster risk reduction policy and planning, national development planning, land-use planning, local development or finance; representatives of national forums on the Sustainable Development Goals; and related agencies.

The course will also benefit development professionals from development agencies (e.g., UN agencies, bilateral and multilateral agencies and nongovernmental organizations), working closely with government agencies on issues related to development policy, planning, and programs.
