Regional Training Manual on Disaster Risk Reduction for Coastal Zone Managers
Asian Disaster Preparedness Center, United Nations Environment Programme

This Training Manual on ‘Disaster Risk Reduction for Coastal Zone Managers’ is for use in regional training course on DRR for Coastal Zone Managers, aimed at building the capacity of government officials, NGOs, academia and other entities responsible for developing and implementing coastal zone management (CZM) programs/projects by introducing the issues and opportunities for integrating DRR into CZM projects. The knowledge shared through this training will help the participants in developing projects and regulations on coastal areas that incorporate DRR concerns and measures – but will not turn coastal managers into DRR experts. By being trained in this field, coastal zone managers will also better identify which kind of development projects would increase local vulnerabilities.
