The United Nations General Assembly has designated October 13 every year as the "International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction" to promote disaster risk reduction globally. The theme for this year is “Early warning and early action” and features the promotion of proactive activities to prevent and reduce risks and build response capacity when a disaster strikes.
To mark the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction, Viet Nam Disaster Management Authority - Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control and UNICEF Viet Nam joined forces to implement a communication campaign titled "TOGETHER WE ACT - For a safe, green and clean Viet Nam for every child". This campaign aims to raise awareness, strengthen skills for children in responding to natural disasters and climate change as well as promote the message of proactive prevention and early action against disasters.
The communications campaign is being implemented from October to December 2022 with a series of online and offline events across Viet Nam.
The campaign’s objectives include:
- Creating a platform for children to play, and learn about climate change and disaster risk reduction
- Focusing the attention of all levels of public, government, and organizations on key issues children face from climate change and natural disasters
- Raising public awareness of the need for children, families and communities to realize green actions for future generations.
