The 14th annual meeting of the Regional Consultative Committee on Disaster Management (RCC) will be held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia on 22-24 May 2018 on the theme coherence of major global frameworks - Implementation of SDGs and SFDRR at the national level.
Seventeen students from the Department of Public Administration, Faculty of Management Science, Prince of Songkla University, Thailan visit ADPC. Led by Dr. Somporn Khunwishit, Associate Dean for Research, students showed a great interest in using disaster management knowledge in their master’s degree in Public Administration.
This year’s theme for International Women’s Day, “Time is Now: Rural and urban activists transforming women’s lives”, calls for promoting gender equality in every field including disaster risk reduction (DRR), as women and girls are disproportionately affected by disasters.
ADPC and Faculty of Public Health, Thammasat University (FPH-TU), signed a revised Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to achieve their shared vision of excellence in public health risk management as a critical element of disaster management.
ADPC is pleased to announce the details for the 2018 training courses are now available. Courses for 2018 include Post Disaster Needs Assessment and Resilient Recovery, Gender in Disaster Risk Reduction, Disaster Risk Communication, Community-Based Disaster Risk Reduction, and Disaster Management.
