Eighteen students from the University of the South Pacific who had attended the PCRIC internship webinar have passed their assessments! These students not only grasped the underlying ideas of PCRIC and disaster risk pools but they also deftly conveyed their personal impressions in their exams.
Certificates of Completion for the two-day Disaster Risk Management and Finance training for the Pacific Region, were awarded at a certificate presentation.
Next up for the students is a research project. All students will now be provided a topic and guidelines to write a paper (around 10 pages in length) relating to particular elements of disaster risk management and finance. All interns who complete this paper by the set deadline will have their papers reviewed and evaluated by the PCRIC CEO, a Legal Advisor and a Board member. Students who author the top 12 papers will receive a cash prize and will be formally entered into the internship program.
