There is no doubt that disasters in the recent past have become a major global concern and challenge. Increasing disasters are attributed to a number of factors, mainly of human origin, such as environmental degradation; rapid population increase with subsequent exponential expansion of urban centres and other related factors; all these leading to increased population vulnerabilities.
The trends of disasters are worrying in their nature, frequency and severity. It is upon this premise that plans such as Hyogo Framework of Action (2005) and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015) were developed as a way of having collective and coordinated efforts to deal with the aforementioned challenges. Thus, development partners, governments and practitioners have rightly highlighted the need to prioritize mainstreaming DRR/CCA in their development and humanitarian interventions. To address the capacity need for DRR and CCA in the development and humanitarian sector, we have planned a five-day training aimed at program planners, decision-makers and implementers. This will contribute towards the achievement of SDG 13 (Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts).
To equip learners with skills and improve their understanding of Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation (DRR & CCA) concepts with an aim to improve quality of DRR & CCA programming so that development actions can ultimately lead to increased communities resilience to common hazards such as droughts, floods etc.
Development and humanitarian actors including project managers, officers and assistants.
An appropriate combination of various adult-learning facilitation paradigms will be used including exploratory learning, group discussions, plenary brainstorming, frontal lectures, case studies and video documentaries among others.
The training cost is US$ 600 and it covers the tuition fees, learning materials, certification, meals and refreshments at the training venue. Further information will be provided upon inquiry.
Accommodation will be arranged upon request by applicants. However, the charges will be borne by the individual participant.
We can provide your organization a tailor-made training with similar content but addressing your specific capacity needs. In case you want to explore this option, you can contact us to share with you a proposal for that training.
