    EMPOWERING THE COMMUNITY, INCLUDING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES TO BE READY FOR POTENTIAL DISASTER RISKS


    Within the framework of International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction, "Be Ready" training was organized in target areas. The training was conducted jointly with the Emergency Management Agency and Red Cross, under the motto 'Fighting Inequality'.

    Focusing on educating the community, the project reached a total of 985 adults and 127 children, including 43 persons with disabilities (PWDs). Participants were equipped with knowledge about object fires, earthquakes, and snowstorms. They also took part in simulations that allowed them to experience and practice their newly acquired knowledge.

    In particular, the project partnered with the Development Center for Persons with Disabilities in Dornod province, with the aim of improving knowledge among people with disabilities who are particularly vulnerable to disaster risks. The training was organized in a way that ensured meaningful participation and accessibility for these individuals. After the training, it was recommended that attention be paid to creating training materials accessible for those with visual impairments.

    Participant Enkhbayar. J said, "I am so happy to have individually participated in this training. Due to my disability, I am at a high risk of any disaster. As a result of the training, I now understand the importance of having first aid items such as bandages, wound tape, plastic bags, documents, scotch tape, paper, pens, pencils, flashlights, and whistles in my bag. I want to share my lessons learned with other people with disabilities."


    HERDER CAPACITY BUILDING FOR PARTICIPATORY DISEASE SURVEILLANCE (PDS/PE)


    The "Climate Resilient Communities" project funded by the USAID's Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance has successfully organized capacity building training for 400 herders from 8 soums in 4 target provinces - Uvs, Dundgovi, Dornod, and Dornogovi, using the PDS Approach, in collaboration with General Authority for Veterinary Services. 

    During the training, herders enhanced their knowledge through open discussions about the risk factors for the occurrence and spread of transboundary animal diseases, data collection techniques, the animal health law, and the responsible use of animal medicines. Additionally, a discussion on infectious, non-infectious, and parasitic diseases of animals was held between the participants and local veterinarians, leading to a Q & A session.

    This on-site training allowed remote herders to actively participate and share their knowledge with their peers. It also provided an opportunity for them to voice their concerns to local authorities.

    Eastern provinces are currently facing increasing migration of herders from other provinces, causing a shortage of pastures and well water, as well as a gradual increase in infectious diseases in animals. On the other hand, herders in the western areas lack opportunities to gain new veterinary knowledge and information, leading to a shortage of veterinarians in those areas.
