Disaster Safety Education

The project supported the National Institute of Education and the Ministry of Education in order to foster disaster preparedness, prevention and mitigation among school children and youths through disaster safety education and practice. Thereby th eproject contributed to improving the physical safety of school communities. Topics related to Disaster Safety such as natural hazards and climate change were introduced into school curricula.

On the one hand, pre- and in-service teacher training was enhanced through curriculum development as well as training of teacher trainers and lecturers. On the other hand, the introduction of modules for school projects and related learning and teaching materials directly supported the ongoing teaching work at secondary school level.

The project co-operated with 200 pilot schools throughout the country. Among many other outputs the project produced a vast array of print materials and a DVD on disaster safety, including teaching material as well as a self-learning student’s section.
