Applying Things Learnt in the Community - Capacity Building Workshop on DRR and Project Management
Capacity Building Workshop on Disaster Risk Reduction and Project Management in Da Nang

Changes happen when we start taking small steps. Through the workshop on disaster risk management and project management, held on 14th and 15th November, we as UN Volunteers interacted with young people in Da Nang and share our knowledge and experience to them .We understand that what matters is not how much we have delivered, but how much the participants have gained from it.

“We can protect our members and teach the students in remote areas on the emergency skills we have learnt” Tran Gia Bao, volunteering in the CLB KẾT NỐI SỨC TRẺ (Connecting the Youth Club), shared to UN Volunteers. Previously, he and his team members have been to a rural district in Quang Nam Province to build a fresh water system for the local students. He sees the need to spread what he has learnt from the workshop about the appropriate responses to disasters to people in his community, who are under high-risk and lack access to information.

We Share and Work Together - Capacity Building Workshop on DRR and Project Management
 Capacity Building Workshop on Disaster Risk Reduction Management and Project Management in Da Nang.

Volunteerism is about connecting and sharing. With the diverse backgrounds and specialties of UN Volunteers from different countries, we have been trying our best to exchange our knowledge and ideas with local communities in Viet Nam. We work not only in our familiar fields in the local agencies, but as a team of UN Volunteers in this lovely country.

Viet Nam faces immense loss and destruction due to flooding every year. Just in early November, more than 80 people had been killed in the flooding caused by Tropical Cyclone Damrey. Seeing the need of responding to climate change in coastal regions including Da Nang and its neighbouring cities, UN Volunteers delivered a capacity building workshop for the youth in Da Nang on disaster risk management and project management on 14th and 15th November, in partnership with the Red Cross in Da Nang.
