Erasmus+ Mobility Grant - Belize

    Project Details


    This mobility project will realize three objectives:
    1. Contribute to identifying new placement options in Denmark and Belize within different national settings of risk management, emergency preparedness, and recovery as well as community resilience, applying strong quality assurance processes in pursuit of this objective. This goal corresponds with Danish national quality assurance regulations as well as Erasmus+ directives stressing the need to establish quality practice placement through university collaboration. To achieve this objective, the exchange of staff from KP to UB and vice versa will be key. The processes will be developed through an open dialogue with administrative staff and faculty sharing best practices, knowledge, and experience on how to support student placements and staff placement before, during and after the exchange.

    2. Development of courses and certified training programs and knowledge transfer within the areas of emergency and risk management. The KP-ERM program is the leading educational program in Denmark educating on a wide range of subjects related to emergency preparedness, emergency response, emergency aid, disaster and risk management, climate change adaptation, and business continuity. It is worth exploring the application of these programs into the current innovation processes established in Belize, where mutual beneficiary programs will result.

    3. Support the implementation of the national disaster management system. Belize partakes in the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), which is a global partnership that helps developing countries better understand and reduce their vulnerability to natural hazards and climate change. GFDRR's major partners in Belize are the Africa, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) Group of States, the European Union (EU), the Inter-American Development Bank, and the World Bank. The country also has a well-formed disaster management system, designed within the GFDRR system. However, the practical implementation of the system is still underway. Training and courses focused on practical implementation and management of this kind of system would be of benefit to UB students and staff and to other relevant stakeholders, who would benefit from practical experiences from Denmark and internationally. Staff at the KP-ERM Program will get first-hand knowledge of working in emergency response in the unique setting of Belize. At the same time, Belize will benefit from the current and the latest international experience of the KP-ERM staff.
