Disaster Risk Education: An Imperative for Education Policymakers

Disaster Risk Education: An Imperative for Education Policymakers

As I mentioned in the last post on climate change, DRE or DRR is moving up the agenda in many countries -often it is because of economic concerns, but at least if it means all are planning and preparing to offset the damage done to families, and normally the poorest, then it is worth the effort.

This report was listed in the INEE newsletter:

(UNESCO and UNICEF)

Education is central to building society’s resilience to hazards. Disasters are occurring at an alarming frequency and with increased severity in Asia and the Pacific. Along with climate change related crises, disasters create humanitarian and development challenges. The education sector has a key role to play in addressing these challenges and in preventing hazards from becoming disasters. This role is best fulfilled through DRR in education.
