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 the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), has developed the e-learning course “Building resilience to compound and cascading disaster risks”.
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.
Christopher Reyer will present the CASCADES project and discuss its implications for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation.
