Disaster Governance and Volunteering Systems - Conference& Workshops 08 – 11 December 2014, Izmir, Turkey
“Disaster Governance and Volunteering Systems - Conference& Workshops” was Turkish contribution to the Disaster Management Training Programme (DMTP) for 2014 and was hosted by the Republic of Turkey Prime Ministry Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD)
As widely known, no matter how successful a country’s disaster preparedness may be, the building of safe settlements, mitigation of risks and prevention of probable disaster damages are fundamentally important. To reach the disaster victims as soon as possible and rescue them following the occurrence of disasters is the universal main objective. The existence of a common language and a healthy coordination enables faster and more efficient advancement for search and rescue operations. While recognising the differences in disaster governance and volunteering systems of the DPPI SEE member countries, through its two-fold programme, the event provided ample opportunity for observing the present disaster governance set-up in the DPPI SEE arena through presentations on related topics as well as through active discussions as part of thematic workshops.
The upload of Event Report for “Disaster Governance and Volunteering Systems - Conference& Workshops”, including conclusions and recommendations, is pending.
