Training content

Training content

The four-day training programme will combine expert input with applied learning methods. A team composed of content experts from the ILO and training specialists from the ITC-ILO will deliver a relevant and learner-centred training.

DAY 01 “Post Disaster Needs Assessments (PDNA) and Response” will start with a brief introduction to PDNAs. Participants will familiarise themselves with the PDNA coordination mechanism as well as the objective and purpose of a PDNA. In subsequent sessions, participants will receive an introductory technical training to assess a disaster’s impact on the Employment, Livelihoods and Social Protection Sector and apply basic calculations to estimate lost days and lost income. At the end of the day, participants will share their experience from recent PDNAs in the Pacific and highlight best practices and lessons learnt.

DAY 02 “Emergency Employment & Recovery” The first half of the day will critically analyse past emergency employment and recovery programmes in Pacific island countries. The second half of the day will present the ILO’s toolkit to help MSMEs in the Pacific to better prepare for and respond to disasters.  

DAY 03 “Field Study and Validation” participants will embark on a half-day field study. This will give them the opportunity to relate key learning outcomes from the preceding training days by visiting selected MSME’s and communities in Fiji that were impacted by Cyclone Pam In the afternoon, participants will engage in a participatory debrief with the training facilitators.

DAY 04 “Wrap-up and Evaluation” marks the end of the training programme. Participants will review and summarise key learning outcomes and develop a strategy to enhance future disaster preparedness and response strategies in the pacific. At the end of the day, participants will undertake a short knowledge acquisition test, evaluate their training experience and receive their certificates.
