Monday, 1. September 2014 to Saturday, 6. September 2014

Following the success of the DPPI SEE Disaster Risk Reduction project that was implemented from 2009 to 2012, National Protection and Rescue Directorate of the Republic of Croatia and Administration for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief of the Republic of Slovenia organized Disaster Risk Reduction Training Course in the twining model as a joint Croatian& Slovenian contribution to the Disaster Management Training Programme for 2014 of the DPPI SEE. 

A total of eight (8) DPPI SEE member countries (16 participants) took part in this year’s course.

With support from Croatian and Slovenian facilitators, the course provided in depth orientation on disaster risk reduction concepts and guidance, including the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA), as well as understanding of the key aspects and activities of response and recovery. The course also built upon participants’ existing knowledge base so they can relate disaster risk reduction issues in practical terms to their day-to-day work responsibilities.

More concrete aim of the course was to develop DRR related project proposal with multinational/regional implementation for the benefit of the DPPI SEE member countries.
