A shift from a culture of reaction to a culture of prevention is what is required to effectively address disasters says Inia Seruiratu, permanent secretary for Provincial Development and Disaster Management.
Seruiratu made the comment while opening a training in Suva yesterday on disaster recovery planning.
Speaking to more than 40 professionals working in disaster recovery in Fiji and Samoa, Seruiratu said there are hazards in Pacific island countries that pose a lot of risks which can be managed and we can learn to live with.
The training organised by the United Nations international Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR), the International Recovery Platform (IRP) and supported by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) is aimed to build the skills of the participants towards resilient recovery and enhance their capacity to minimize the impact of future disasters.
It also aims to strengthen partnerships and improve knowledge in managing recovery programs, and share lessons learned from prior global/regional and national experiences.
