Episcopal Relief & Development is working with Episcopal/Anglican partners to better prepare for and respond to disasters, whether natural or human-made. At the core of this goal is our pilot Disaster Risk Reduction and Management initiative with the Anglican Diocese of Colombo and the Church's Auxiliary for Social Action (CASA) in Sri Lanka.
A working group of regional and international partners is evaluating existing disaster preparedness and response practices, identifying possible improvements, and producing a toolbook of core competencies and standards, best practices and case studies. To address the need for increased capacity, the program includes a "training of trainers" component, with learning and practical field work. Participants will go on to facilitate disaster response training for others, which will expand local churches' ability to act more effectively in future emergencies.
