ALMATY – Experts from Kazakhstan were trained to use the DesInventar-Sendai disaster loss management system thanks to the European Union (EU) funded project on strengthening disaster resilience in Central Asia. The DesInventar Sendai system software helps to analyse disaster trends and their impacts, and leads to better prevention, mitigation and preparedness to disasters.

The training session was carried out on 4-5 June by the CIMA Foundation and Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) in coordination with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR). It brought together representatives of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Kazakhstan, regional operators for loss data accounting and analysis from regional departments of emergency situations, and national disaster loss data experts.

The workshop, which follows similar workshops held in 2021 and 2022, provided participants with practical examples and exercises to record and manage disaster loss data and to support the nation-wide application of the DesInventar-Sendai system. It also provided information on the interoperability between different software and monitoring systems and different targets linked to the Sendai Framework and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The implementation of the “DesInventar Sendai” system software has helped more than 90 countries worldwide to develop sustainable disaster information management systems aligned with the Sendai Framework monitoring process. The system allows to analyze disaster trends and impacts through a large range of sectoral and socio-economical dimensions. As a main benefit, the “DesInventar Sendai” system supports a dialogue on risk management and disaster risk reduction planning between all stakeholders from the local to the regional level.
