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.
