Tajikistan DesInventar Training

DUSHANBE– On 7-8 July 2021, experts from Tajikistan participated in the second part of the National training on the “DesInventar-Sendai” – a disaster information management software.

The main objective of the training was to strengthen relative capacities of authorities responsible for disaster risk management, including technical staff in use of the analysis module of the DesInventar -Sendai system. During the workshop, experts identified the progress and necessary steps to implement the system in the country. In addition, participants also reviewed the status of the reporting to Sendai Framework Monitor and discussed the existing national system for collecting and analysing data on disaster losses and the DesInventar-Sendai system. They compared technical features of the systems in the context of alignment with the Sendai Framework Monitor.

The “DesInventar-Sendai” system supports a dialogue on risk management and disaster risk reduction planning between all stakeholders from local to regional levels. This is especially important in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic which has demonstrated the need to accelerate action on disaster risk reduction and to strengthen information management and exchange. The system allows to analyse disaster trends and impacts through a large range of sectoral and socio-economical dimensions. It is expected the implementation of the “DesInventar-Sendai” system software will help Tajikistan to develop sustainable disaster information management system aligned with the Sendai Framework monitoring process.

The training brought together experts from Committee for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense, Agency on Statistics, Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, Ministry of Agriculture, Committee for Environmental Protection and Agency for Hydrometeorology.

The workshop was organized by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), in collaboration with CIMA Research Foundation and the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), with the support of the European Union. The event took place within the framework of the “Strengthening disaster resilience and accelerating implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction in Central Asia” initiative, funded by the European Union.
