Strengthening disaster preparedness at global, regional and national is critical to save lives, protect livelihoods and strengthen recovery from disasters and crises. However, significant gaps exist in the many international development systems in the coordination of disaster and emergency preparedness efforts. These can be addressed by better-integrating contingency planning and business continuity planning into organizational processes through establishing agreed standards and tools for multi-hazard emergency preparedness.

Contingency planning ensures that individuals and organizations know what to do when disaster strikes and have the systems and tools to respond in a timely manner during such incidences. It means anticipating the types of disasters that might occur and understanding how to manage them when they strike.

This training is meant to improve knowledge on contingency planning including the entire cycle of activities that go into the development of plans that are practical, result oriented, simple, participatory, and realistic and supported by preparedness actions.
