8th Regional Training Course On Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Reduction Into Development Process

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
Undefined

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.
