About NEA/GETI

UNISDR for Northeast Asia

UNISDR's office for Northeast Asia (NEA) is located in Incheon, South Korea and includes a Global Education and Training Institute for Disaster Risk Reduction (GETI).

The City of Incheon in the Republic of Korea is fast becoming a hub for international action in resilient development. When the Green Climate Fund set up shop at Incheon 2013, they will find common interest with their neighbors in the UN family, including the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction for Northeast Asia and Global Education and Training Institute for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR ONEA-GETI) which was established in 2011 through cooperation with the National Emergency Management Agency of the Government of the Republic of Korea and the City of Incheon.

The UNISDR ONEA/GETI was established with the aim of promoting disaster resilient societies through global advisory and training initiatives that support a new cadre of professionals in the areas of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation.

As an Office for Northeast Asia, ongoing support to the HFA Monitoring, HFA2 Consultations and advancing the Making Cities Resilient Campaign took center stage. As a Global Education and Training Institute, the team worked to build necessary capacities, processes and structures for Mainstreaming Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction into Development (MADRiD) and strengthen the capacity support providers for cities and local governments. The Institute reached over 350 participants from over 25 counties in 2012. Training modules, and technical working papers were produced and a new global partnership for DRR was mobilized in 2012.
