OIC Disaster Risk Management Capacity Building Programme (OIC DRM-CaB)

Disaster is an unprecedented calamity which adversely disrupts the normal scenario of the affected zones. Sometimes the amount of losses caused by the disaster exceeds the community’s or society’s ability to cope using its own resources. But practice of the Disaster Risk Management (DRM) may reduce the risks and losses through systematic efforts to analyse and reduce the causal factors of disasters.

The concept of the Disaster Risk Management (DRM) is a part of the sustainable development in OIC Member Countries, as a significant number of the Member Countries lack the instruments, skills and expertise to factor the potential adverse effect of disasters in their investment decisions even though some of them geographically and due to the particular climate are prone to natural disasters. Therefore mainstreaming of disaster risk management into development policies and transmission of intra-OIC knowledge and experience are top priority concerns for of OIC Member Countries for preparation to face any sudden calamity.

Therefore, in line with the request of the 38th Session of the Islamic Commission for Economic, Cultural and Social Affairs (ICECS), which was held on 31 March–2 April 2015, Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Centre has commenced the Disaster Risk Management Capacity Building Programme of OIC Member Countries (OIC DRM-CaB). Consequently, the Centre has prepared a questionnaire of the OIC DRM-CaB Programme so that after receiving the responses of this questionnaire from the relevant authorities of the OIC Member Countries, different types of capacity building activities can be arranged according to the needs and capacities of the Member Countries.
