Capacity Building
AIDMI's learning resources conduct training for panchayat leaders, local decision-makers, school staff, government officials, volunteers, CBOs, NGOs staff, and communities on key disaster management topics.
 
So far All India Disaster Mitigation Institute (AIDMI) completed 456 trainings covering 16155 participants and 19 subjects across 12 states and union territories of India and neighborhood countries including Bangladesh, Maldives and Myanmar. This achievement is mainly due to increasing demand for such trainings from the range of communities since 2001 after Gujarat earthquake and AIDMI’s flexible and community focused trainings methods and tools evolved across nine disasters and ten years. The trainings are done for UN to local NGO, national institute to local colleges.  The first training was conducted on July 12, 2001. Such constant efforts are very rare by agencies in India.
 
25 National and Regional Courses with universities in Switzerland, UK and Bangladesh. Also ToTs for organizations and Government from Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Maldives and Iran. Covered 522 participants. 
 
27 Distance Learning Training sessions were conducted with ISRO on DRR and School Safety covered 1988 community, students and teachers of Gujarat through Village Resource Centers.

AIDMI and Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) complete 40 trainings on 'School Safety Including the School Disaster Management Plans and Conduct of Mock Drills' across 25 districts in Assam for 1680 educators.

The most important impact of AIDMI trainings are on the leadership capacity of the trainees. Leadership in emergency response, response preparedness, and community partnerships are enhanced in these trainings offered to the local leaders in now 11 states of India.
