RIMES Secondment Program aims at building scientific and technical capacities of scientists, forecasters, and technical specialists from RIMES Member and Collaborating States. This capacity building process involves technology transfer, sharing of knowledge and experience, and on-the-job training.
In collaboration with the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), RIMES offers fellowships for a 2-year Master Program in Disaster Preparedness, Mitigation, and Management. The RIMES-AIT Graduate Fellowship Program aims to ensure a dynamic human resource base in RIMES Member States on hydro-meteorological and tsunami warning, research, and applications.
This album contains photos taken during field work carried out under UNESCAP funded project “Enhancing Coastal Hazard Early Warning and Response: Tools and Institutional Strengthening” in Myanmar, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Thailand.
This album contains photos of activities implemented under the UNESCAP funded project “Reducing risks of tsunami, storm surges, large waves and other natural hazards in low elevation coastal zones” in Bangladesh, India, Maldives, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. The project aims at strengthening institutional systems for end-to-end warning, and building institutional capacities for the application of warning information products in decision-making.
The first Regional Training-Workshop on Iterative Risk Management (IRM) for Climate Change Adaptation Policy and Practice took place from 19-23 August 2013 at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) Campus, Thailand.
This album contains photos of activities implemented under the UNESCAP funded project “Strengthening of Myanmar’s Multi-Hazard Early Warning System”. This project aims to assist Myanmar’s Department of Meteorology and Hydrology (DMH) in developing a capacity building program framework for addressing capacity gaps, as well as fill immediate capacity gaps in earthquake monitoring and tsunami warning, and decision-support tools for disaster risk management.
