  • 1. South-East Asia Regional Delegation CONCEPT NOTE “Disaster Risk Reduction Practitioners Workshop” Thailand, 13-14 November 2013 1. Background The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) South- East Asia Regional Delegation has been implementing the Regional Project Initiative supported by ECHO through DIPECHO Action Plans 6th, 7th and 8th. The project targets to seven countries of Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines, Timor Leste and Viet Nam with major focus on institutional capacity building for national societies in strengthening and scaling up community based risk reduction initiatives and approaches toward vulnerable communities in South- East Asia region. In this framework, the IFRC is gearing up to organize a so called “Disaster Risk Reduction Practitioners Workshop” to further engage relevant DIPECHO partners to explore what are key learning points for the future intervention and what can be collectively achieved in the region as well. 2. Purpose and objectives The workshop aims to bring together 60 Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) practitioners with hands-on experience with implementation of community based risk reduction activities on the ground under the current DIPECHO Action Plan in Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines, Timor Leste and Viet Nam plus DPR Korea and Mongolia and review and identify the best practices and lessons learned for future references when implementing DIPECHO Action Plans. The workshop will also focus on further identification of persisting bottlenecks and up to date practices related to more integration of DIPECHO projects into longer term sustainable programmes supported by governments and donor community. Two expected specific objectives toward the workshop:  Understand and identify the good practices, lessons learned, gaps, skills, challenges, tools and methods and share experiences in community based risk reduction initiatives to enhance integrated community based programming  Identify inclusive areas and approaches toward community resilience linking the grass root level with national, regional and global level initiatives. The event intentionally focuses on several themes below:  School safety- empowering youth in risk reduction;  Early warning- early actions;  DRR & livelihoods;  Community mobilization and inclusive approach (People with disability; Women; Children Ethnics etc.)  Advocacy; Awareness; and Accountability
