Landslide education, training and capacity development
Conveners : Dwikorita Karnawati (email@example.com ) ; Surya Prakash (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Session description :
The session focuses on landslide education, training and capacity development to promote awareness and preparedness against disasters, thus reducing the risks and losses. Most of disasters occur, where the communities are not well aware, informed and prepared. Absence of awareness and preparedness results into poor implementation of landslide prevention and mitigation measures, and thereby brings down the capacity / resilience to disasters. Therefore, papers related to various efforts or programs to develop capacity of the society to make them resilient against the landslides, are invited in this session. Innovative approaches and methods, case studies, best practices and lesson learnt from past disasters for improving the quality and efficacy of landslide education, training, and capacity developments at the local, national or global levels, will be discussed during this session.
The output of the session may help in the formulation of appropriate strategies and approaches for the capacity development in landslide risk reduction. The contributions made in this session will be published in the Proceeding of 2nd World Landslide Forum.
