Brunei Darussalam is exposed to four key risks of natural disasters including floods, forest fires, strong wind and landslides.
Therefore, the country must be prepared and take extra initiatives on reducing risks to ensure a safe and resilient community.
The matter was stressed by Awang Shahrin bin Haji Mohd Jawie, Acting Director of the National Disaster Management Centre, NDMC, during the Operational Document Task Force Workshop focusing on Strategy 8 on Climate Resilience and Adaptation.
The workshop at CAE Brunei Training Centre in Rimba was attended by 70 participants from the stakeholders. The workshop was co-organised by the NDMC and the Brunei Climate Change Secretariat as well as facilitators from Ministry of Development, Brunei Association of Surveyors, Engineers and Architects or PUJA and the Public Works Department.
