On 30 October 2019, DKKV welcomed a delegation from the Chinese Ministry of Emergency Management. In addition to the DKKV's fields of work and the projects carried out, the 25 representatives were introduced to THW's structure and areas of responsibility. In addition to the visit of the DKKV, an information event at the BBK was on the programme for the delegation.
Furthermore, the DKKV was able to welcome a delegation from the Shanghai emergency management bureau on 28 November 2019.
Delegation from South Korea
A delegation from South Korea visited us on 19 June 2019. The 22 participants were invited by the Korea Standard Association to Germany to learn about disaster risk management. As the participants hold leading positions in companies operating critical infrastructures (electricity and gas suppliers), the participants were interested in an overview of German actors in disaster control and especially in the topic of KRITIS.
The staff of the DKKV office and Chris Hetkämper of TH-Cologne presented not only the DKKV and the German disaster control system, but also the latest results of the DESKRIS and KIRMin projects.
Delegation from Fiji Islands
A delegation from the Fiji Islands visited DKKV on 2 May 2018. Representatives from the municipal administration, the construction and environment ministries visited the DKKV and some institutional members of the DKKV such as the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW), the Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) and the Cologne Municipal Sewage Works (StEB) to learn from their expertise.
As the Fiji Islands are already threatened by climate change, it was also necessary to identify cooperation opportunities in the fields of disaster prevention and early warning systems, but also climate change adaptation measures.
