Building Capacity for Reducing Loss and Damage Resulting from Slow and Rapid Onset Climatic Extremes through Risk Reduction and Proactive Adaptation within the Broader Context of Sustainable Development
|Project Summary||A three-day four in-country learning labs were organised by the Centre for Global Sustainability Studies (CGSS), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), in collaboration with International University and Viet Nam National University, National University of Laos and University of Battambang, Cambodia, during 2014-2016 in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Ho Chi Minh (Viet Nam), Vientiane (Lao PDR) and Siem Reap (Cambodia). Fifty participants from Malaysia and twenty participants from other countries were selected to attend these learning labs. The curriculum of the learning labs includes: (i) discussion of South East Asia climate trend and scenario with focus on climatic extremes; (ii) definition of disaster management terms, risk equations, disaster trends, population, urbanisation and DRM, Malaysia and DRM; (iii) DRM-SD cycle components - risk management (before the event) - prevention and preparedness; (iv) DRM-SD cycle - disaster management side (after the event); (v) training of risk reduction project management tools involving Logical Framework Analysis (LFA), System Thinking using Atkisson's Pyramid Approach and World Cafe for effective stakeholder discussion. The three-day learning labs comprised personalised instruction and hands-on learning to develop risk reduction projects for country specific disasters. The backdrop of the entire discussion was the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015, the Rio+20 outcomes The Future We Want and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.|
