Case study: Disaster risk reduction field sessions in Southeast Asia

Purpose:

This document provides an overview of the disaster risk reduction field sessions conducted in Southeast Asia.

Overview:

A DRR Field Session is carried out over ten days. Participants spend three days in the field and seven days in the classroom. These ten days are made up of practical work, group activities and theory, in a workshop setting. The entire process promotes peer learning and enhances skills based on logic and reality.

There are two scenarios in every field session. The first is a case study and the second is a real situation – one that places participants directly in contact with a community that needs assistance. These scenarios are designed to test and sharpen a participant’s skills and knowledge about:

  • comprehensive assessment techniques
  • collected information and their systematic organization
  • translating processes from vulnerabilities into potential capacities
  • developing related strategies, and writing a plan of action

Usage: Guidance for implementation

Audience: National Society staff and volunteers

Case study: DRR Field Session: A tool for community safety and resilience in the Asia Pacific region

Purpose:

To give an overview of DRR Field Session implementation in Asia Pacific.

Overview:

A DRR Field Session takes place over 10 days. Participants spend 3 days in the field and 7 days in the classroom. The entire process promotes peer learning and enhances the development of skills based on logic and reality. There are 2 scenarios in every field session: a case study and a real-life situation. The field session places participants directly in contact with a community that needs assistance.

The first DRR Field Session was held in Laos in 2010, in the following three years, the regional delegation’s Community Safety and Resilience Unit held a total of 6 field sessions throughout South Asia, South-East Asia and East Asia for 148 participants from 9 communities (4 urban and 5 rural) from 20 National Societies.

Field session participants are trained on two important lessons:

  • Firstly, that the consideration of overall risk reduction measures contributing to community resilience is important, and should always be kept in mind.
  • Secondly, that group learning maximizes knowledge sharing as participants simultaneously impart and receive knowledge

Usage: Training, Guidance for project implementation

Audience: Technical staff, Communication staff, Volunteers
