The ADPC Academy provides training in specialized fields of disaster preparedness for governments, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations. The capacity building courses offered by the ADPC Academy cover key areas in disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation through diverse and customized approaches. We regularly update training curricula in alignment with the priorities of regional and global development frameworks.
The ADPC Academy is the capacity development department of ADPC hosting all of the ADPC flagship training programs. The ADPC Academy supports other training activities by carrying out comprehensive training needs assessments (TNA), designing training modules, ensuring delivery and conducting evaluation. It fosters long-term partnerships with institutional partners, national training institutions, as well as research and development agencies across Asia and the Pacific and beyond to provide customized trainings and capacity development tools for classroom as well as E-learning modalities.
ADPC Academy, previously known as the Training Services Department (TSD), was established following a strategic evaluation of disaster preparedness and response capacity, throughout Asia, that recommended capacity building as necessary for effective preparedness. Since then, the training and capacity development initiative has become one of ADPC’s principal and recognized initiatives for its expertise at the regional level.
