Deliverable 5.4: Training Module for Practitioners

The training module is intended to provide practitioners working in the areas of disaster risk management and climate change with a better understanding of the practice of DRR and CCA. The training materials have been made available to registered users  on the E-learning platform of the United Nations University - Institute for Environment and Human Security (updated Jan. 2014): UNU-EHS online learning platform for Knowledge Exchange. The module is a work in progress and submodules will be added as a result of CATALYST follow up initiatives such as the CATALYST-Local Winter Academy.

Deliverable 6.5: Best Practices Policy Notebook
This report in the form of a series of essays is aimed at policy-makers as well as practitioners. It focuses on the transformative approaches and measures that can support DRR and CCA. It is complemented by the Best Practices Papers: Before Disaster Strikes - Transformations in Practice and Policy prepared for each of the four CATALYST regions (see above), but takes a a multi-regional perspective. Themes include ecosystems-based DRR/CCA, mainstreaming DRR/CCA, urban DRR, drought risk management for agriculture, climate risk insurance, small island developing states, follow up to the Hyogo Framework for Action, and how to continue the CATALYST legacy.
