Consortia hold DRR/CCA Practitioner’s Guide consultation workshops
Published on 28 March 2012
All five ECB consortia in Bangladesh, Bolivia, Horn of Africa, Indonesia and Niger have held their second Practitioner's Guide to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) consultation workshops.
The final of the five workshops was held in Niger on Monday 26 March, in advance of the second practitioner's guide summit to be held in Bangkok 3 – 6 April 2012.
The workshops brought together key country stakeholders to:
- review the history of the development of the guide
- the content of the guide
- to discuss further case studies, examples and best practice that can be incorporated into the final draft.
The workshops are a critical step in the process, to ensure that the end product is practical and accessible for a practitioner audience. The guide will be published by August 2012.
Feedback from the consultation workshops is currently being put together by the consortia. This will be reviewed and considered by the consultants responsible for the development of the guide, prior to the Bangkok summit, supported by Save the Children.
