Practical aspects of capacity development in the context of disaster risk reduction Magnus Hagel steen, Joanne Burke
This is important study on the capacity analysis by DRR community. The three World Conferences on Disaster Risk Reduction(DRR), held in Yokohama Kobe and Sendai Japan, identified capacity development for DRR as one of the primary means of substantially reducing disaster losses. Many organizations are involved in supporting capacity development for DRR. However knowledge about capacity development, what it involves and what works in practice is still an emerging subject. Project management frameworks, such as results-based management or the logical framework approach, are routinely used for DRR projects, yet they do not include guidance on capacity development
Thus, one recurring challenge facing the DRR community is related to how capacity development initiatives are identified, designed and implemented. There are many factors and issues that influence capacity development for DRR .A number of challenges and opportunities were identified from scientific literature and. interviews with capacity development and DRR experts. Seven elements emerged from this study as being important to capacity development for DRR.
