This new training program will promote participants’ understandings on basics of PFA, do’s and don’ts, and self-care technique, through web/VC-based lectures and discussions. The program will provide basic knowledge on how to offer PFA, as well as basics on mental health and psychosocial support after crises which will be an emerging priority in disaster risk management policy making/implementation. The program will be facilitated jointly by the World Bank/TDLC, UNU-IIGH, and the National Institute of Mental Health in Japan, in close partnership with WHO.
The System of Rice Intensification (SRI) is a set of innovative agricultural practices and is attracting international attention because its methods increase the productivity of land and water, resulting in higher yields than traditional methods. The TDLC and NGO Zutto Sustainable held a “Workshop for International System for Rice Intensification (SRI) Network”, on October 28, 2008 by connecting Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan and the United States via the World Bank’s Global Development Learning Network.
