Child-centred disaster risk reduction in Australia: progress, gaps and opportunities

Child-centred disaster risk reduction in Australia: progress, gaps and opportunities | Disaster Resilience Education | Scoop.it

The primary objective of child-centred disaster risk reduction (CC-DRR) is to strengthen children’s skills so that they understand the risk of disasters in their communities and are able to play a role in reducing the risks and impacts of potential disasters. Historically, the approaches embodied by CC-DRR have remained on the margins of Australian disaster risk reduction (DRR) policy, research and practice. More recently CC-DRR has been recognised as a valuable component of disaster risk reduction frameworks at the local, regional and national levels and this is reflected in new initiatives in a variety of domains, including disaster resilience education, school emergency management, and community-based programming. This paper provides a progress report on some of these of these initiatives and identifies several gaps and opportunities that are still waiting to addressed.

CSR Asia - Corporate Social Responsibility in Asia | Disaster Resilience Education | Scoop.it

The death toll from the earthquake in Awaran, southwestern Pakistan has exceeded 500. The disaster was certainly been exacerbated by the fact that communities affected had poor infrastructure and many buildings simply collapsed when the disaster struck. Relief efforts have been slow and survivors have complained about the lack of shelter from the scorching sun. But relief efforts were also hampered because of community conflicts and attacks from insurgents.
