Three Days Training on Risk Reduction & Resilience Building
HOW WILL THE TRAINING BE USEFUL?
Resilience and risk reduction is a very pertinent issue for the sustainability of development interventions and for creating more resilient communities from shocks and stresses related to disasters or climate change, which if not mitigated with adequate measures push communities into further poverty.
Often the local government has some funds, however it doesn’t get utilized for the benefit of local communities unless they voice strongly for it.
For instance, communities might need government support to strengthen some embankment or pave canals to prevent floods, to construct a safety zone for evacuation, renovation of schools & hospitals to prevent causalities during a disaster.
Three-day training will be conducted on this theme. Following topics will be covered:
– Concept of DRR, climate change impact and adaptation, DRR cycle
– Disaster management governance, Sendai Framework for DRR
– DRR lessons from Japan
– Hazard, vulnerability, capacity assessment
– Contingency planning
– Using Quality and Accountability Standards (Sphere and CHS) in Humanitarian Response (How these standards can be contextualized)
