19th Regional Learning Workshop on Community Based Disaster Risk Reduction
Location: Bangkok, THAILAND
Date: July 19-30, 2010
The CBDRR course provides an opportunity for practitioners to learn essential skills and knowledge in community based disaster risk reduction to address implementation challenges in a systematic manner. CBDRR participants acquire tools and obtain knowledge on “how to” design and implement programs for reducing disaster risks and vulnerability and building community capacity to promote a culture of safety.’ Through exercises and simulations participants practice risk assessment and risk reduction planning.
The participants will have a chance to learn about globally acknowledged programs and projects on community based disaster risk reduction from leaders of these initiatives, with a particular focus on examples from South and South East Asian regions. The CBDRR course tackles the issues in disaster risk reduction from a developmental perspective, discusses the issues and problems concerning sustainability, replication/ adaptation of CBDRR practice and integration of risk reduction plans with government and non-government development plans.
