The main goal of the workshop was to increase social demand and political commitment for integrating disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation into overall economic and social planning processes, as well as to promote the establishment of sustained human resources capacity development (pool of experts and trainers) for further adaptation and dissemination of the methodology. Target audience of the workshop were national government officials responsible for DRR.
In the course of a three-day workshop, the participants had an opportunity to gain an in-depth knowledge of Sendai Framework and practice drafting of National DRR Action Plan by using Sendai Framework indicators to assess existing risk management instruments in their respective countries.
