This course can effectively promote the popularization and application of our theory and technology of disaster risk reduction and management in other countries, improve the capacity of disaster risk reduction and management along the road, and support the construction of Silk Road and the safety of people's livelihood. Till now, the training course was successfully carried out at Institute of Mountain Hazards and Environment in Chengdu, China in 2016 and 2017. 56 international students and early career scientists have participated from more than 10 countries. Through the successful training of the class, some of the students have already applied the skills and experience to the disaster risk reduction and management in their country. For example, after the earthquake in Nepal, Nepalese students came to school and actively participated in the seismic relief and post-seismic secondary mountain disasters prevention and dissemination of local governments and civil organizations. It has made important contributions to the reconstruction and the safety of people after the disaster. Meanwhile the training class has further strengthened the exchange and cooperation between the project team and the students from Nepal and Pakistan. For example, the project team cooperates with the students of Tribhuvan University in Nepal to apply for the International Mountain Center-China National Fund Committee Joint Fund Project, students from Nepal, Pakistan and other countries applied to the Institute of Mountain Hazards and Environment, CAS to continue their studies etc.
