This course seeks to cultivate the capability of professionals mostly doing work in Disaster Risk Reduction as well as Climate Change Adaptation and Impact to develop, manage, evaluate and undertake improvements in people-centered initial warning methods for hydro-meteorological & extreme events and geological hazards related to variability and climate change. It creates upon In-depth Research Services (IRES) expertise in creating capacities on using of GIS, Remote Sensing as well as room-based solutions in catastrophe risk management for disaster relief institutions, disaster management providers and communities. It seeks to institutionalize weather as well as climate info programs for disaster mitigation.

Who Should Attend?

The program is customized for Disaster Risk Reduction as well as Climate Change Adaptation and Impact practitioners, advancement employees, which includes officials of provincial and national governments, extension officers, safeguard forces, crisis services, and employees of instruction institutes, institutions of public administration, national as well as UN agencies, international NGOs & the private sector. Individuals that are accountable for disaster mitigation, recovery, response, preparedness, then disaster management policy will acquire most in the curriculum.

​Duration:5 days

Course Objectives

The primary objective of the instruction is enhancing the capability of participating institutions and professionals, to successfully develop capabilities in process design of multi-hazard early warning systems, and also mitigate the appearance of events related to geological and hydro-meteorological phenomena.

Upon conclusion the participants are going to learn how to:

• Undertake risk assessment as well as look of multi-hazard early warning devices for disaster risk reduction

• Effectively integrate technical and scientific inputs into first warning dissemination as well as communication system

• Develop techniques to institutionalize early warning devices into the system cycle of catastrophe risk management as well as preparedness,, emergency response and development planning activities

• Develop chance interaction & communication technologies

• Interpret scientific info products into easy to use formats and also ready & communicate tailor-made soon warning info products

• Design and implement society based early warning systems which are folks centered

• Evaluate and cause public education and exercise plan for the community based timely warning systems

• Apply RS and GIS for designing implementations of big scale first Participatory GIS and warning systems abilities for neighborhood Early Warning Systems

• Apply Mobile Data Gathering solutions for quick assessment and surveys

• Apply emerging model weather prediction technologies for predicting and managing disaster risks associated with variability and climate change
