This study aims to identify the skills and needs expected of the built environment professionals by the communities affected by natural disasters with a view to map the identified skills and needs with core priority areas of Sendai framework. In achieving this, a literature synthesis including the CADRE (Collaborative Action towards Disaster Resilience Education) outcomes and Sendai framework were reviewed and a comprehensive desk review to map the identified skills and needs with core priority areas of Sendai framework were conducted.
The study findings would be beneficial to the built environment professionals in enhancing their capacity and capability development in all the priority areas of Sendai framework. The study would further be useful for non-governmental organisations (NGOs), governments including national, regional and local government, and the private sector in drawing policy recommendations, monitoring and assessing the capacity required of the built environment professionals in the implementation of Sendai framework.
