Beating the training obsession: making capacity development for disaster risk management matter

Becker, Per LU orcid (2014) 74th Annual Meeting of the SfAA In SFAA 2014 Programme p.111-111
Abstract
The last ten years have seen a sharp increase in externally supported capacity development initiatives for disaster risk management. However, not all of them have generated sustainable results. The purpose of this paper is to scrutinize the current focus on training as the main tool for capacity development in the context of disaster risk management, and to argue for the necessity to address capacity development more holistically if it is to have any lasting effects on our increasingly precarious future.
