DISASTER RISK REDUCTION for TEACHERS COURSE DPPI SEE – DMTP 2014 28 Aug - 1 Sep 2014, Terme Tuhelj, Croatia
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 has organized a Disaster Risk Reduction for Teachers Training Course in a twining model. This event represents the Croatian and Slovenian contribution to the Disaster Management Training Programme for 2014 of the DPPI SEE.
The course has provided basic information on disaster risk reduction concepts and guidance, including the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA), and in depth orientation on the Priority 3 of the HFA. The course has also built upon participants’ existing knowledge base in a way that they could relate disaster risk reduction issues in practical terms to their day-to-day work in schools and implement important information on DRR into their lectures.
The aim of the Course was to help teachers develop an understanding of the link between DRR and everyday lessons and give them an opportunity to practice the acquired knowledge.
The course was attended by representatives of 7 (out 9) DPPI SEE member countries (Albania, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia and Turkey).
