Human Trafficking
Trafficking in persons is a violation against human rights. It involves the act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harboring or receiving a person for the purpose of exploitation or forced labor, by exerting force, coercion or other means of pressure. Local governments should play a key role in preventing and combating human trafficking. CIFAL Jeju/JITC offers training for local government officials and stakeholders to equip them with the practical methods of raising public awareness on identification, protection and reintegration of victims by city-to-city cooperation and exchange of experiences.
Migration
Every year, a large number of people in the world cross borders in an irregular way. Unfortunately, this migration is often aided by smugglers or traffickers, which has brought high demands for safe migration in both public and private sectors. Mainstreaming migration into development, ensuring human rights of migrants and addressing negative perceptions for migrants and migration should be the key policy priorities for any government to achieve sustainable development. CIFAL Jeju/JITC provides various groups with an opportunity to learn multi-disciplinary approaches to protection of migrants by sharing best practices and engaging in facilitated sessions on comprehensive migration policies.
Disaster Risk Reduction
In the context of increased urbanization and global warming, the role of local governments in building resilient cities and adapting to climate change has been recognized as a critical component to sustainable development. The way a city plans and prepares for the future will impact the prospects of the city's sustainable development. CIFAL Jeju/JITC offers workshops aimed at strengthening the capacity of local governments from the Asia-Pacific region to implement the Sendai Framework for DRR and also facilitate the exchange of knowledge on how to incorporate DRR strategies into urban planning and design.

"Developing Capacities on Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) 
in the Asia-Pacific Region"
 

Jeju, Republic of Korea, 18-21 April 2016 (Mon-Thu)


Background 

“Disaster risk reduction advances progress on sustainable development and climate change. … disaster risk reduction is in everybody’s interest – and it is everybody’s business.” 
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon 

In September 2015, member States of the United Nations have adopted the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This inclusive and transformative agenda sets the strategic direction for building resilient cities and human settlements by responding to concerns about the impacts of climate change and disaster risk. Prior to the SDGs, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 was adopted as the first of the post-2015 development instruments and this new framework will have a profound impact on the lives of people for years to come. 

In this regard, building resilience and adapting to climate change is crucial for cities especially those in the Asia-Pacific region. The region is subject to all major types of natural hazards and dominates disaster impact categories across the world. During the past decade the region was struck by 1,625 disasters—over 40 per cent of the global total – and half a million people lost their lives. The region has incurred substantial economic damage of more than half a trillion dollars over the same period, accounting for 45% of global total. Unfortunately, planning and development of cities and local government has given little consideration to the consequences of natural hazards, which are at the forefront of disaster. 

This training will provide strategies and tools to localize the global frameworks for climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction into building safe, resilient and sustainable cities in Asia Pacific region. The training process includes lecture sessions with expert inputs combined with real-life case work and best practice. Session-based group work will enable participants to transform in-depth learning into practice and familiarize with coordinated action for decision making. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to utilize and implement the international framework into their cities in the pursuit of greater disaster resilience and sustainable development for the region.
