COVID19 recovery and other environmental issues

Training programme on disaster risk reduction

The Singapore Cooperation Programme is partnering the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) to provide technical assistance to fellow developing countries through a joint training programme on “Introduction to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)”. This online course will be conducted via four webinars (23 Sep, 30 Sep, 7 Oct and 14 Oct 2020), and is open to government officials from all developing countries.

The course examines key principles of DRR and the hardcoding of resilience into policy, implementation action and human behaviour. Drawing lessons from the COVID-19 global pandemic which demonstrated the ‘new normal’ of interconnected risk, participants will learn about the Sendai Framework for DRR 2015-2030, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement, interlinkages with International Health Regulations, and possible applications to their State’s existing policy and recovery plans. The course will also cover Singapore’s approach to integrated risk management and multi-stakeholder approach to crisis recovery in the context of COVID-19. UNDRR will provide globally accepted tools to help participants become familiar with developing risk-informed strategies and plans that link DRR, climate action and development.
