During this era that is defined by the climate crisis, we see a deepening risk of natural disasters in every corner of the world. The Ministry of the Environment, Japan (MOEJ), along with IGES, has developed the e-learning course “Building resilience to compound and cascading disaster risks”. The course is hosted by the Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Information Platform (AP-PLAT).

You are cordially invited to an international workshop on Friday, January 21st from 4pm to 6:30PM (JST) (GMT +9). This international workshop will serve as the official launch of the course, spark exchange among a broad range of stakeholders, and include discussions about gaps in capacity and needs to strengthen disaster management at the local level in order to reduce and prevent compound and cascading disasters.

The programme will include introductions by Osamu MIZUNO, Programme Director, Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and Binaya Raj SHIVAKOTI, Senior Policy Researcher, Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES).
