11 January - 15 February 2022
From 11 January to 15 February 2022, the JICA Knowledge Co-Creation Program Comprehensive Disaster Risk Reduction was held online. The program was organized by ADRC and was attended by five national and local disaster management officials from five countries.
In alignment with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR), especially target (e) "Substantially increase the number of countries with national and local disaster risk reduction strategies by 2020," the goal of this program was to enable the DRR systems of each country to be upgraded based on national and local DRR plans and thus to reduce the damage caused by disasters. Over the course of the program, each participant was expected to formulate a draft local DRR plan.
During the six-week program, the participants proactively joined lectures on disaster countermeasures and exercises around local DRR plans, and drafted plans for their target municipalities.
