UNDP and Resiliént/City partner to lead Resilience and Human Security Training with CIESS in Mexico City
From 15-19 October 2018, Resiliént/City, UNISDR Promotor Henry Peralta and the United Nations Development Program organized and led the “Resilience and Human Security facing Disaster Risk and Climate Change” with our new partners at the Centro Interamericano para la Seguridad Social/Interamerican Center for Social Security (CIESS) in Mexico City. The four-day certificate training was attended by several government agencies in social security, public health and infrastructure from over a dozen Latin American and Caribbean countries. The “Resilience and Human Security” exposed workshop trainers and participants on the negative effects of disaster on developing states’ ability to deliver social security services, unemployment benefits, job security and reconstructing infrastructure. Much more academic and research attention is needed to assess how resilient practice and risk-based governance models for social security can generate more resilient societies, reduce poverty and insulate jobs, the all-too important tourism sector and critical infrastructure from climate stress.
