Human Resources Development Project for Community Disaster Preparedness in India Completed!

JWF conducted a human resources development project to strengthen community disaster preparedness in Kolkata, India. The project was carried out in collaboration with a local NGO, Society for Equitable Voluntary Actions (SEVA), supported by the 11th TOTO Water Environment Fund.

Asian cities including India are highly prone to various water-related disasters such as torrential rain, flooding, drought, land erosion and typhoon. They have considerable impacts on the lives of individuals and urban socio-economic infrastructure. Meanwhile, we have seen the frequency and the extent of damage of such water-related disasters keep rising due to global climate change and urbanization along with population growth.
We carried out this project aiming to  strengthen community disaster preparedness.
