Capacity Building Projects: connecting theory to practice 

Connecting theory to practice FAR international, regional, or national projects aim to enhance capacities for disaster risk management at all levels in high-risk regions of the world. FAR projects are multifaceted – combining research, training, and field applications – and can range from the testing of community-centred disaster risk management strategies to the delivery of targeted training. Lasting from one to two years or more, FAR projects are designed to create a solid network of “cultural first aiders” and change agents, who can mainstream concerns for cultural heritage and train actors in the fields of disaster risk reduction, emergency management, climate change adaptation, humanitarian aid, and conflict transformation.
