Disaster risk reduction (DRR) is a vital element of any responsible humanitarian aid effort, as well as a crucial part of governmental planning. Both strive to ensure that when the next disaster hits, the loss of life is significantly decreased and communities have the knowledge, skills and infrastructures to rebuild their lives as quickly and effectively in a manner that fits their culture and expectations. The modern risk management approach recognises that a wide range of geological, meteorological, environmental, technological and socio-political hazards threaten society – individually and through complex interactions. Risks are located at the point where hazards, communities and environments interact, and thus, effective risk management must address all of these aspects. This three-day DRR training covers Disaster Risk Reduction approaches and operational issues and will provide practical skills to enable humanitarian workers to build DRR approaches into their disaster responses and local capacity building efforts. The course will cover: -Fundamental terminology and concepts -DRR Framework (inc. Hyogo Framework, Pakistan National Disaster Risk Management Framework) -Marginalized groups -Community level risk reduction -Education, information and communication -Community participation -Different approaches between rapid and slow onset disasters including Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) -Disaster preparedness planning -Risk reduction after disaster -Mainstreaming DRR across different sectors -Monitoring and evaluation
