8th Regional Training Course on Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Reduction into Development Process
Date: 21 - 25 Aug 2017
Venue: Bangkok, Thailand
The development of this course included engagement of technical experts from various sectors. The development drew upon experiences and examples of countries mainstreaming DRR into national and sectoral development planning processes. Comments and suggestions generated from the four previous courses were considered to ensure relevance and appropriateness of the contents to all participants.
The course will be delivered using adult learning techniques with an emphasis on interactive lectures, group exercises, plenary sessions, and group brainstorming. The course will be enriched by guest speakers who will host debates and discussions using their wealth of practical experience in the field to provide cutting-edge insights into how to progress the mainstreaming agenda. Participants will also be encouraged to share their experiences of mainstreaming DRR from their respective countries.
