Training the Trainers ─
Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction Training Workshop
2016 - Present
According to the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), disaster risk reduction (DRR) is the concept and practice of reducing disaster risks through systematic efforts to analyze and reduce the causal factors of disasters. Reducing exposure to hazards, lessening vulnerability of people and property, wise management of land and the environment, and improving preparedness and early warning for adverse events are all examples of disaster risk reduction.
DRR is everyone‘s business. It involves every part of society, government, the professional and private sector. Thus, ICDI considers it as a must to hold DRR activities.
ICDI designed the localized training courses with the toolkit of Participatory Capacity and Vulnerability Analysis (PCVA) and UNISDR’s Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities. Partici-pants from local governments, industries, communities, NGOs and university students were trained to practice the tools for disaster resilience planning.
