Overview course on disaster risk reduction, response and recovery


Description

In order to increase the quality of capacity development projects, the SRSA has, in close cooperation with ISDR, OCHA and UNDP, developed an overview course on disaster risk reduction, response and recovery. The course is to be used as a learning tool for capacity development projects, to train field personnel involved in these projects and to spread general awareness of a holistic approach to disaster risk reduction, response and recovery to other SRSA personnel and national and international partners.

The initial course was given in Sweden the 31 Oct - 9 Nov 2007 with 24 participants from six different countries, who all are professionals involved in disaster risk reduction, response and/or recovery. In addition to an increased knowledge the participants emphasised networking and a constructive atmosphere as the most positive experiences about the course. The course will also be given in 2008.

Target audience

The course is intended for SRSA staff and roster personnel working in disaster risk reduction, response or recovery projects. Staff from international agencies and national authorities or organisations related to disaster risk reduction, response or recovery is welcome to apply.
