RECENT CLIENTS

INTRODUCTION

Disaster risk within a country has its roots in development decisions that do not adequately address disaster concerns, and the resulting disasters are coming at the cost of development and poverty reduction. By not considering disaster risk in development planning, new risks could be unintentionally created or existing ones exacerbated through investments in infrastructure and public services, and through improper planning and regulation.

Thus, it is essential that the process of development planning identifies and analyzes the underlying causes of risk, and factors in measures for risk reduction. By mainstreaming disaster risk reduction into national development processes, disaster risk considerations can be made an integral part of development processes, especially in priority sectors such as agriculture, education, health, housing and roads.

This course has been developed to enhance the capacity of government officials, development partners and stakeholders involved in development planning to mainstream disaster risk reduction into development activities and practices.

DURATION

5 days.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The course is particularly useful for government officials responsible for disaster risk reduction policy and planning, national development planning, land-use planning, local development or finance; representatives of national forums on the Millennium Development Goals; and related agencies.

The course will also benefit development professionals from development agencies (e.g., UN agencies, bilateral and multilateral agencies and nongovernmental organizations), working closely with government agencies on issues related to development policy, planning and programs.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

The goal of the course is to enhance understanding of mainstreaming disaster risk reduction (DRR) into the development planning processes through building the capacities of government officials, development partners and stakeholders to implement disaster resilient development.

  • Enhancing the capacity of participants on ‘how to’ mainstream disaster risk reduction concerns into the national, sub-national, and sectoral development planning processes

  • Providing a platform for experience sharing, discussion and interactive professional exchange on mainstreaming disaster reduction in development

TOPICS TO BE COVERED

  • Introduction to disaster risk reduction.
  • Mainstreaming disaster risk reduction into the development planning process.
