RIMES- Training on Enterprise-Based Early Warning System and Climate Change

The Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System for Africa and Asia (RIMES) is organizing a Training Course on Enterprise-Based Early Warning System for Enterprises in Thailand, from 17-21 June 2013 in Bangkok. The training assists participants and their respective organizations in designing and/or implementing their early warning systems, taking into consideration the impacts of climate change and the higher frequency of extreme climate and weather events.

It specifically helps them to: develop an early warning system and risk management plan tailored to the needs of their organization; examine the kinds of tools and products that are available or could be developed to integrate information into forms most useful for them to make decisions at various levels; and set-up appropriate contingency plan or options to guide members of their organization against various hazards of different timescales.
At the end of the training, participants and/or their organizations can opt to collaborate with RIMES in establishing and sustaining their enterprise-based early warning system.

The training includes: i) a 3-day series of presentations and discussions, and ii) a 2-day enterprise-based guided planning workshop aimed at helping participants design an early warning system and risk management plan for their respective organizations.

The course fee is USD1,000 per participant. This is inclusive of course materials, and refreshments and lunch during the course. Participants will be responsible for their own travel expenses, and arrangements such as airport transfers (and visa application, where necessary), food and accommodation, health/accident insurance, and other personal expenses. RIMES cannot provide financial help to participants.
