UN personnel to receive training in disaster risk reduction, climate change, and environmental sustainability

The Regional Bureau of Education for Latin America and the Caribbean (OREALC/UNESCO Santiago) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), together with the UN agencies in Panama, are organizing a Training Workshop on Disaster Risk Reduction for Members of the LAC Peer Support Group (LAC PSG), a group composed of UN agency representatives that provides support to develop the United Nations Development Assistance Frameworks (UNDAFs) in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.

The workshop is backed by UNESCO, and seeks to support countries to draw up their United Nations Development Assistance Frameworks (UNDAFs) for 2011 and 2012

The workshop is part of the training event “Transversal Disaster Risk Reduction, Climate Change, and Environmental Sustainability in country-level UN programming”, which will be held in Panama between 11 and 15 July, 2011. The aim of the meeting is to support countries in drafting their 2011 and 2012 UNDAFs, and it is being organized by the United Nations Development Group’s unit for Environmental Sustainability, Climate Change and Rio+20, in collaboration with the United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC) and CADRI, the Capacity for Disaster Reduction Initiative.

The workshop will focus on content related to the integration of risk management in national UNDAF frameworks, as well as the integration of environmental sustainability in the analysis of the country and the assistance framework. It will therefore feature experts in the creation of these instruments, who will also share their experience in application efforts.

This training for UN personnel aims to provide a base of knowledge and skills in order to offer effective support for country teams in transversal disaster risk reduction, particularly in education.
