The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. It has 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. Among 17 SDGs, sustainable development Goal-13 deals with the urgent action to combat climate change and its impact. Climate change is a real and undeniable threat to our entire civilization. The effects are already visible and will be catastrophic unless we act now. Through education, innovation, and adherence to our climate commitments, we can make the necessary changes to protect the planet. The main targets under climate action (SDG-13) include SDG 13.1 and 13.2 which discuss strengthening the resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related disasters and building knowledge and capacity to meet climate change.
Many communities struggle with how to prepare for disasters. It can be difficult to talk about vulnerability to disasters, and it can be even more difficult to keep people engaged and motivated to take action. In this context, a 2 days training workshop is proposed on the topic “Disaster Resilience- Conclave” in association with the C-20 event organized at Sikkim to build civilian/community resilience. This training provides insights into how and why people respond to risk and helps participants develop new skills to better connect with a variety of audiences. Understanding and connecting with an audience’s diverse values and concerns can lead to a higher level of community engagement and can help motivate action to reduce risk. Trainees will learn how to recognize differing values and identify how and why people perceive and respond to risks the way they do; apply social science and risk communication principles when faced with challenging questions; respond to difficult questions with more confidence; and develop an effective risk communication strategy that incorporates relevant and proven principles. This training program helps emergency services and communities better prepare for disaster resilience. After the training program, participants will be able to become trainers for their community to equip them with disaster resilience.
