Technical workshop on integrated planning and implementation of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation: A comprehensive risk management approach (Training of trainers for local practitioners)

Organizer(s) UNDRR Bonn Office United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction - Office in Incheon for Northeast Asia and Global Education and Training Institute for Disaster Risk Reduction

Course background: 

Local governments and stakeholders are on the ‘frontline of opportunity’ to reduce the impacts of disasters – keep people out of poverty; protect hard-earned local development gains; and enable local communities to become more inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable. Challenged by climate emergency, pandemic, and other shocks and stresses, resilience building can no longer be a stand-alone issue and must take into consideration the inter-dependencies between sectors, the interconnectedness of socio-economic factors, and the complexity of hazards. 

This course aims to provide an introduction on integrated disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation planning and implementation using the CRM approach and the Climate Resilience Scorecard for Cities for local practitioners from cities and local governments: 

  1. Develop a trained cadre of experts and build knowledge and capacities of key stakeholders at sub-national level for integrated disaster and climate risk reduction and resilience planning 
  2. Introduce key concepts and strengthen the understanding of the links between disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation 
  3. Provide approaches and tools to support integrated DRR and CCA risk assessment, planning and implementation 
  4. Facilitate cross-sectoral and cross-stakeholder experience sharing and peer-to-peer learning, and foster exchange of good practices with the government of the Republic of Korea
