Climate change is one of the most significant challenges that will confront the world over the next decades and a key factor in the growing number of hydrological and meteorological disasters.
Although no region of the world is completely safe, the poorest countries are by far the most vulnerable due to their lack of appropriate resources.
The North-South scientific partnership and strengthening of the capabilities of scientists and other stakeholders in developing countries is essential in the struggle to improve disaster risk reduction.
The 3rd Edition of the CDRR proposes a continuing education course to professionals and specialists from both Southern and Northern countries who already have significant experience in disaster risk reduction or a related field such as climate change adaptation or development.
The CDRR aims to strengthen the capabilities of participants in the field of disaster risk reduction, especially hydrometeorological disasters and/or those related to climate change.
