Disaster Risk Reduction in Education: Knowledge and Learning Resources
Building Resilience with and for Children in Central Asia and South Caucasus.
This compendium provides a useful collection of teaching and learning materials on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in Education from Central Asia and South Caucasus. The materials, which have been developed since 2007, are part of a regional programme on DRR to build resilience to emergencies among communities, and particularly among children in schools. The programme has been funded mainly through the European Commission’s DIPECHO programme.
Some of these materials have been used by government institutions to increase awareness on DRR, while some have been adapted for use by other countries. The compendium aims to support the exchange of materials among countries and to highlight innovation on DRR in education. It includes brochures, textbooks, games, manuals, videos and other materials from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, as well as a number of multi-country documents.
