24 May to 8 July 2022 (Online)
Asian Disaster Reduction Center (ADRC) conducted the JICA Knowledge Co-Creation Program course entitled "Comprehensive Disaster Risk Reduction for Central and South American Countries" from 24 May to 8 July 2022, with the cooperation of JICA Kansai. It was attended by 18 participants from 10 countries: Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, and Peru.
During the 7-week program, the participants attended lectures on disaster countermeasures and exercises around local DRR plans, and drafted plans for their target municipalities. They are expected to actively engage in DRR measures to reduce humanitarian and economic losses due to disasters. ADRC would like to express its sincerest gratitude to all the organizations and universities that contributed to the success of this course.
