In cooperation with the World Bank, EU and UNDP, DPPI SEE hosted the regional training workshop on Post Disaster Needs Assessment in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) is a methodology designed to assist the affected communities in their recovery process. The idea behind the training was to familiarize the participants with the concept and with that to contribute to the processes of pre disaster recovery planning. DPPI SEE member states have already experienced the process of PDNA with the floods in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia, floods in North Macedonia and the recent earthquake in Albania and the training was built around those experiences. The ultimate goal of the training was to expand the pool of regional experts in PDNA, invest in their skills in knowledge on long term basis and use them in real time situations.
