International Organization for Migration, Lao PDR, and US Work to Improve Disaster Preparedness
June 30, 2015

VIENTIANE - The International Organization for Migration (IOM) Lao PDR, supported by the US government, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare Monday to officially commence a project to strengthen the capacity of Lao government officials to be able to manage humanitarian emergencies.

The project will focus on developing a National Disaster Management Training Framework for government officials working in relevant sectors. The project will work not only at central level, but will train officials in all provinces in the complete disaster management cycle from prevention to recovery.

With support from the U.S. Agency for International Development, the project intends to create an online database that will include all current, previous and future disaster trainings. This will make trainings more accessible for government officials from the district to central level in various ministries.

The project also plans to train officials from relevant ministries in a baseline disaster management course in order to ensure comprehensive understanding.
