Under USAID Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), the community-based disaster risk reduction (CBDRR) is one component (as a sub-project) which is implemented by Thai Red Cross Society (TRCS). The CBDRR project is to strengthen capacity of community members to be ready in responding to disasters. In addition, the CBDRR process will cover the disaster circle from preparedness, response and recovery.
TRCS conducted the training for community leaders from 4 communities in Angthong province on 27 April 2017. There were 18 males and 20 females participated in this training. The training focused on Red Cross background, disaster knowledge, vulnerability and capacity assessment (VCA) tools and VCA practice.
