The steady increase in climate related disasters such as floods, cyclones, storm surges and drought have increased the exposure and vulnerability of communities, their livelihoods, physical infrastructure and economic networks. An increasing hazard risk results in higher human and economic losses from disaster events.

Participants will learn to recognize synergies, mainstream CCA and DRM and become a forward-thinking managers who can anticipate and prepare for climate related hazards.
