4th Training Course on Gender Equality and Social Inclusion in Disaster Risk Reduction Course
Date: 17 - 21 Oct 2022
Venue: Bangkok (On-site Training), Thailand
In disasters, the needs of women, girls, boys and men are different and distinct. However, women and girls are disproportionally affected. Other marginalized and vulnerable sectors of the population such as persons with disabilities and persons with special needs are as equally affected.
With the maxim that genuine development must leave no one behind, development practitioners are strongly encouraged to attend this course as it will provide them with an improved capacity to develop and implement gender equality and social inclusion strategies in DRR contexts.
Interested individuals and organizations can register online at www.adpc.net/apply.
