"It's All About Making The Right Choices At The Right Time"

What is this course about?
In a world where both natural and man-made disasters are affecting us with alarming frequency, the concepts of disaster preparedness and disaster risk reduction (DRR) are top of the list of priorities of an increasing number of countries in Asia. Disaster Risk Reduction is a systematic approach to identify, assess and mitigate the risk of disaster. DRR aims to reduce socio-economic vulnerability to disaster as well as dealing with the environmental and other hazards that trigger them. DRR is not a one-off activity but instead an integral part of the way organisations do their work. DRR is wide-ranging; its scope is much broader and deeper than crisis management. This programme addresses the challenges of assessing hazards, vulnerability and resilience and maximizing community engagement to transform information gathered into a professional plan aligned with Government and other agencies.

PARTICIPANTS

FAQs
What happens at the end of the three-year programme?

This field is developing so rapidly that it is hard to predict with certainty what will happen at the end of three years. Furthermore, many countries in Asia are experiencing such dynamic economic and social changes that in turn have impacts on how climate change is being experienced and addressed. Apart from the immediate benefits generated during the three years of operation, the Adaptation Platform will contribute to a substantial repository of knowledge and experience that will continue to be used by governments and the private sector in the future. It is expected that there will be ongoing input to the platform from those who have gained considerable expertise in climate adaptation strategies through this round of programme activities.

Does the platform replicate work that is already being done by others?

No, it does not. While there are a number of networks and partnerships for action on climate change, what the platform offers is a unique space specifically devoted to learning about adaptation strategies as they are being undertaken. The platform is solution-focused, enabling professional and technical staff to meet, network and share information and experiences on common sets of challenges in this region.

What can the platform offer to business people?

The platform offers many opportunities to access new research information directly from universities, institutes and practitioners, and to feed into the agenda for new research to be undertaken. Platform events will offer networking opportunities and the chance to share with others successful strategies and lessons learned in business sectors such as agriculture, transport, and construction.
