Trainors’ Training on the Resilient LGU Program for Academic and LGU Partners

The Trainors’ Training on the Resilient LGU Program is an initiative for the partners of the National Resilience Council (NRC) to gain knowledge on the Resilient LGU Program, disaster risk reduction concepts, integrated risk assessment and the social dimensions of risk and resilience.

The training invites NRC partners that come from the local government and the academe to undergo a series of lectures, workshops and a teaching simulation. By strengthening their capacities, particularly the academic institutions, NRC envisions a localized and contextualized approach in implementing its program.

The first run of the 4-day training was organized in partnership with the Zuellig Family Foundation, Manila Observatory (MO), Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) through the Coastal Cities at Risk in the Philippines (CCAR): Trans-Disciplinal Action Research Project—an ADMU-MO project funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Local Government Academy (LGA), SM Prime, San Miguel Corporation and the Carlos P. Romulo Foundation.
