This training module has been prepared to inspire the youth, young professionals and volunteers to look beyond their monotonous scope and bring forth disruptions and innovations in the field of disaster risk reduction and risk management. Given the tremendous potential of the youth, young professionals, this module intends to motivate them to work towards resilience in their own unique way. Apart from having the conventional sections of training, this module derives heavily from global experiences, documented in Words into Action.
The ultimate objective of the module is to kindle the spirit of voluntary contribution in youth, in all the dimensions of disaster risk management. This contribution may come in the form of facilitating effective disaster response, or, may even go beyond the accepted paradigm like the development of agile and lean mechanisms for disaster risk management. In a way, the focus would be more on stimulating the youth and young professionals to contribute meaningfully in disaster risk reduction and not merely in disaster response.
