Association of Disaster Risk Management Professionals, Sri Lanka (External organisation)

Activity: Membership typesMembership of committee

Description

In Sri Lanka, recognition of disaster risk reduction (DRR) as a core competency of professional disciplines is yet to be achieved. This is also the ground reality in South Asia. Realizing this, the SAARC Disaster Management Centre has initiated a process to bring together a multi-disciplinary team of professionals to serve its member countries to provide policy advice and facilitate capacity building services including strategic learning, research, training, system development, expertise promotion and exchange of information for effective disaster risk reduction.
In Sri Lanka such expertise available is scattered in silos of professional disciplines and not utilized in the current realm of DRR in the country. The commencement of the Association of Disaster Risk Management Professionals of Sri Lanka (ADRiMP) endeavors to address this need. ADRiMP is an assembly of professionals representing varied disciplines to nurture a culture of safety in Sri Lanka from the impact of disasters and climate change.
