At the end of the training, participants demonstrated skills in formulating a climate-smart, gender-responsive, community-based early warning system for landslides in their local context. The design is patterned after the four elements of an effective EWS by UNISDR (2006) and utilizes a combination of lectures, group discussions, and simulation activities.

Pag-aram 2019: A Training of Trainers on Community Landslide Risk Assessment

(September 2019) (as overall learning coordinator, facilitator, and lecturer) A 4-day training of trainers participated by community volunteers, village officals, and municipal and provincial DRRM office representatives in Eastern Visayas.

focused on landslides. Assessment tools taught and facilitated included landslide reporting and mapping, hazard timeline, seasonal calendar, stakeholder analysis, transect walk, geotagging, participatory 3D mapping, vulnerability and capacity assessment matrices, and problem and solution tree. Learning Needs and Capacities Assessment (LNCA) (June and August 2019) (as facilitator)

A preparatory activity prior to training of trainers that aims to assess the participants’ readiness and needs for the training, gather their expectations on the training design, and communicate and settle logistical concerns. Overall, it acts as a groundwork to better gauge the participants’ training needs and learning capacities. People-centered early warning system training in selected Dynaslope site (February – March 2019) (as facilitator and lecturer)

A 2-day comprehensive workshop series participated by households at-risk of landslides, community members, village officials, municipal and provincial DRRM office representatives, and non-governmental organizations.
