Resilience Action Planning - Implementing the Sendai Framework at the Local Level (E-learning course)

Tools , Available in Español

Over the past 20 years disasters have affected 4.4 billion people, caused USD 2 trillion of damage and killed 1.3 million people. Disasters have affected people living in developing countries and, in particular, the most vulnerable communities within these countries. Particularly in the context of increased urbanization, urban risk continues to rise. The vulnerability of cities to disasters is growing especially as poor people settle in high-risk urban areas. Unfortunately, the planning and development of cities has given little consideration to the consequences of hazards such as earthquakes, hydro-meteorological risks and others. The implication of this reality is the need for countries to focus on creating a safer world for urban dwellers and developing a series of innovative approaches to build resilience. On the basis of these needs, UNITAR has developed the e-learning course Resilience Action Planning - Implementing the Sendai Framework at the local level. This e-learning course aims to strengthen the capacities of government officials, especially those at the local level, and disaster management professionals to design and implement plans and programmes that reduce disaster risk and enhance resilience. At the end of the course, participants will be able to: Raise awareness about the Making Cities Resilient (MRC) Campaign; Identify initiatives and best practices on how to integrate disaster risk reduction and climate change adoption into urban planning; Assess the risk management situation in their cities by using a tool; Develop a safe and resilient country/city action plan; Analyze the purpose, the goals and the outcome of the HFA and the Sendai Framework for DRR
