Description

CRED coordinates the implementation of the EU-funded MICRODIS project, which includes a large variety of training and capacity building activities.  Floods and disasters are two of the three main disaster related focus in MICRODIS. These activities aim to address the need for disaster preparedness, mitigation and prevention at all levels of society. This ranges from the very grassroots needs of sharing information and training local leaders or children about what to do to prepare for or respond to a disaster threat in their community, to sharing research results and recommendations for action with governments and other decision makers in order to help establish effective and sustainable prevention, response and mitigation strategies in their departments and institutions. There is also a focus on education in academic institutions to respond to the need for training of future leaders on past and current disaster experiences, policies, needs, assessment methods, and integrated impacts for the local, regional and international context.
