GETI was established in 2010 to promote disaster resilient societies through global advisory and training initiatives that support a new cadre of professionals in the areas of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. Focus is given to civil servants of disaster prone countries.
We provide ongoing support to the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk
Reduction and advance the Making Cities Resilient campaign. As a Global Education and Training Institute, the team works to build national and local government capacities and processes for mainstreaming climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction into development policy.
Since 2012, over 3,100 participants from 76 countries have been trained, 3 technical working papers released, over 100 Korean cities have joined the Making Cities Resilient campaign, and new global partnerships for disaster risk reduction are being mobilized.
