Overview (RIMES Training Program)
The Master Plan 2010-2014 of the Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System for Africa and Asia (RIMES), prepared by the RIMES Executive Board through a series of consultations with Member States and collaborating countries, identified capacity building on end-to-end early warning as critical for providing actionable warning information towards forearmed, forewarned, and resilient communities. This involves technology development and transfer, training, and demonstrations to address gaps in risk knowledge, hazard observation and warning, communicating risks, and response capabilities.
RIMES training program, hence, targets a diverse audience, from development workers, resource managers, disaster risk managers, forecasters, planners, administrators, and policymakers. Training courses are designed and offered to cater to country- and project-specific needs, as well as needs by various professionals on thematically based subject matter.
