The course uses a participatory training approach. Short lectures are complemented by group exercises, case study analysis, plenary discussions and field visits to communities. The trainers are experienced IIRR professionals led by IIRR Asia’s Program Specialist for Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation Wilson Barbon. Professionals from Nepal will also co-facilitate the training program.
