7th Local Platform Workshop in Yangon

A two-day local platform workshop was held on June 15 and 16, 2017 at the Myanmar Engineering Society (MES) Building. The objectives of the workshop were to provide disaster risk reduction (DRR) training to the participants and to form the Disaster Management Committee of the two GGS Project pilot wards in Yangon. The DRR training was facilitated by the Relief and Resettlement Department of Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) and by SEEDS Asia, an NGO committed to supporting people build safer and more resilient communities. The facilitators explained the mechanism of different hazards affecting Yangon and how to prepare for these hazards, the meaning of different DRR terminologies, and the important provisions of the National Disaster Management Law of Myanmar.
