Title: SESSION 17: DISASTER RISK REDUCTION AND EDUCATION


1
SESSION 17 DISASTER RISK REDUCTION AND EDUCATION
2
Learning Objectives
  1. Define DRR and its implications in relation to
    disaster management.
  2. Understand priority actions identified under
    Hyogo Framework for Action, and particularly
    education-related
  3. Understand why disaster risk reduction/mitigation
    are increasingly important.
  4. Identify critical components of school safety.
  5. Review DRR actions that MoE and education actors
    can support to be practically implemented at
    school, community and sector levels.

Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)
Disaster Risk Reduction Seeks to minimise
vulnerabilities and disaster risks throughout a
society, to avoid (prevention) or to limit
(mitigation and preparedness) the adverse impacts
of hazards within the broad context of
sustainable development
Everyone is involved in DRR!

Hyogo Framework for Action
The Hyogo Framework for Action (2005-2015) -
represents five goals and priorities for action
on Disaster Risk Reduction over the next 10
years.
  1. Ensure that disaster risk reduction is a national
    and a local priority with a strong institutional
    basis for implementation
  2. Identify, assess and monitor disaster risks and
    enhance early warning
  3. Use knowledge, innovation and education to build
    a culture of safety and resilience at all levels
  4. Reduce the underlying risk factors
  5. Strengthen disaster preparedness for effective
    response at all levels

Why DRR?
  • Disasters are increasing in frequency and impact
  • The poorest of society are most
  • affected
  • Children are proportionally the
  • most vulnerable when
  • disaster strikes
  • Disasters make the poorest even poorer
  • DRR is more cost effective than relief and
    recovery in the long-term
  • 1 versus 4

6
Disaster Risk Reduction Activities
  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Livelihoods support (including cash transfers,
    insurance, vouchers)
  • Early Warning Systems
  • Inclusion of DRR in Education curricula
  • Increasing awareness of DRR at all levels
  • Designing DRR materials for communities and
    schools
  • Building cyclone-resistant schools and hospitals

7
School Safety
  • The critical components of school safety are
  • To save lives and prevent injuries
  • 2. To prevent interruption of education
  • 3. To develop resilient society able to reduce
    the social, economic, and cultural impacts of
    recurring hazards

8
DRR and Education
  • Building a culture of resilience and safety
    through education
  • Incorporation of DRR in national school curricula
  • Teacher training on DRR
  • Training on school-level risk assessment
  • Development of DRR resources and guidelines
  • Building and retro-fitting school infrastructure
    to be disaster-resistant
  • Strengthening disaster preparedness in education

9
Exercise Design of DRR Education Activities
  • In groups, focus on designing DRR interventions
    for each of the following levels
  • For children and teachers at
  • school level
  • For communities in disaster-prone areas
  • For the Education Sector as a whole and wider
    government
