22 August - 29 September 2022 (online)
The JICA Knowledge Co-Creation Program "Comprehensive Disaster Risk Reduction for the African Region" was conducted online from 22 August to 29 September 2022, with the cooperation of JICA Kansai.
It was attended by seven government officials from four countries: Democratic Republic of the Congo, Malawi, Senegal, and Cabo Verde. This course focused on flood and sediment disasters. Participants studied disaster countermeasures for their target cities by attending lectures on each disaster and participating in exercises to formulate a draft local DRR plan. They all worked so hard during this course, not only acquiring knowledge and skills, but also developing their relationships with one another. The Asian Disaster Reduction Center (ADRC) would like to express its sincerest gratitude to all the organizations and universities that contributed to the success of this course.
