With support from AXA XL, RedR UK will be conducting learning needs assessments (LNA) to inform the creation of a bespoke Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction training course and companion handbook. The project aims to improve planning and action around climate change and disaster risk reduction in the humanitarian sector.
The training will blend theory with practice, sharing best practice throughout the stages of the disaster risk management cycle and giving participants frameworks, tools and approaches to effective DRR. The training will also use contextualised climate change case studies to provide participants with a relevant and comprehensive training curriculum. Participants will also have the opportunity for further training and coaching to support participants to share their learning with colleagues and beneficiaries.
Through this project RedR UK aims to create advocates for change, building the resilience of vulnerable communities and helping to ensure that livelihoods can be protected, homes appropriately prepared, and food and water security maintained for the long term.
