DPMM Steering Committee Meeting and Workshop on “Disaster Resilience Education Capacity Building in South-East Asia”

Disaster Preparedness, Mitigation and Management (DPMM) program is organizing a Steering Committee Meeting and Workshop on “Disaster Resilience Education Capacity Building in South-East Asia” as follows:

Date: July 21, 2016 (13.30 – 16.30 hrs)

Venue: AITCC (Room No. B204)

Background: The Asian region is recognized as critically important for global sustainability because of its rapid and uneven growth and high vulnerability resulting in the potentially dramatic environmental degradation, social disparities, human rights violations and many other concerns. It is evident that the natural disasters in its various phases significantly impacted the economic and development index of the Asian region. Higher Education Institutions can potentially play important roles in imparting the sustainability education paradigm upon society and in integrating the notion into educational programmes and systems.

Disaster Preparedness, Mitigation and Management (DPMM) program at AIT is one of the partner institutions for the project ‘Disaster Resilience Education Capacity Building in South-East Asia’ with University of Newcastle, Australia under Australia-ASEAN Council (AAC) Grant. It is organizing a half-day workshop to raise awareness of the diverse disaster risk profiles among project partners, leading to a deeper understanding of operational context in each country and helping to generate a shared vision for resilience education. Experts from diversified domain of Disaster Risk Management are expected to participate the workshop.

Interested persons please contact - Dr. Indrajit Pal, Assistant Professor, DPMM, AIT (indrajit.pal@gmail.com )
