    Over the past 20 years disasters have affected 4.4 billion people, caused USD 2 trillion of damage and killed 1.3 million people. Disasters have affected people living in developing countries and, in particular, the most vulnerable communities within these countries.

    Particularly in the context of increased urbanization, urban risk continues to rise. The vulnerability of cities to disasters is growing especially as poor people settle in high-risk urban areas. Unfortunately, the planning and development of cities has given little consideration to the consequences of hazards such as earthquakes, hydro-meteorological risks and others. The implication of this reality is the need for countries to focus on creating a safer world for urban dwellers and developing a series of innovative approaches to build resilience.

    On the basis of these needs, UNITAR has developed the e-learning course Resilience Action Planning - Implementing the Sendai Framework at the local level.

    This e-learning course aims to strengthen the capacities of government officials, especially those at the local level, and disaster management professionals to design and implement plans and programmes that reduce disaster risk and enhance resilience.

    At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

    • Raise awareness about the Making Cities Resilient (MRC) Campaign;
    • Identify initiatives and best practices on how to integrate disaster risk reduction and climate change adoption into urban planning;
    • Assess the risk management situation in their cities by using a tool;
    • Develop a safe and resilient country/city action plan;
    • Analyze the purpose, the goals and the outcome of the HFA and the Sendai Framework for DRR

    A lo largo del los 20 últimos años, los desastres han afectado a 4.4 mil millones de personas, costando un total de 2 billones de dólares de perjuicios y 1.3 millones de muertes. Los desastres han afectado a las personas que viven en países en desarrollo y en particular a las comunidades más vulnerables de esos países.

    Hoy en día, en el contexto de crecimiento urbano, el riesgo sigue aumentando cada vez más. La vulnerabilidad de las ciudades frente a los desastres se amplifica especialmente cuando las personas pobres se instalan en áreas urbanas de alto riesgo. Desafortunadamente, la planificación y el desarollo de las ciudades no han considerado las consecuencias de los riesgos como los terremotos, los riesgos hidro-meterológicos y tantos otros. Esa realidad tiene como consecuencia la necesidad para los países de enfocarse en la creación de un mundo más seguro para los habitantes urbanos y en el desarrollo de una serie de enfoques innovativos para alcanzar una resilencia.

    En acuerdo con esas necesidades, UNITAR ha desarrollado el curso en línea, Planes de acción para Resiliencia-Implementar el Marco de Sendai al Nivel Local.

    El curso en línea tiene por objetivo principal reforzar las capacidades de los funcionarios del gobierno, especialmente de los que trabajan al nivel local, y de los profesionales que se manejan en temas de gestión de desastres, para que conciban e implementen planes y programas de reducción del riesgo de desastres y que mejoren la resiliencia.

    Al final del curso, los participantes lograrán:

    • Sensibilizar sobre el "Making Cities Resilient (MRC) Campaign";
    • Identificar las iniciativas y las mejores prácticas para integrar la reducción del riesgo y la adopción del cambio climático en la planificación urbana;
    • Evaluar la situación de la gestión del riesgo de desastres en países de los participantes usando empleo de herramientas diversas;
    • Desarrollar un plan de acción seguro y resiliente para sus ciudades/países;
    • Analizar el objetivo, las metas y el resultado del HFAb y del Marco de Sendai.
