This concise guide on design and conduct of simulation exercises is part of the Words into Action Guideline series on practical implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction Priority 4 component on enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response.
It targets emergency managers, relevant government officials and many other actors responsible for disaster preparedness planning and drills.
It consists of three main sections: General Information on Simulation Exercise, or SIMEX; the Process; Existing Guidelines.
The Working Group hopes that this concise thematic guide on Simulation Exercise is helpful as a companion for implementing risk-informed preparedness for effective response, Sendai Framework Priority 4. It is an evolving and living document. Several topics of concise guides on “Disaster Preparedness for Effective Response” are under development. After reviewing existing guidelines presented in this guide and learning about good practices, it is recommended that you also use those thematic concise guides relevant to your needs and context for more detailed guidance. The Working Group invites you to join the community, share your comments and your case studies in the Community of Practice space.
