Silly Timmy Disaster Comic in Russian - Неразумный Тимофей!

The original versions of these are almost four years old now, but after some being translated into major European languages that are spoken globally I wanted to be inclusive of other languages. This relies on meeting the right people and for this I relied on my good friend Tatiana Saraeva who translated here into Russian language!  I am including the first seven below, with hopefully more to come soon. As ever I am…See More

How to communicate better to stop disasters occurring

I have read an interesting blog written by Robert Glasser from UNISDR, with the WCDRR coming up in Cancun. I agree with many of the points made, and would like to see more culturally appropriate community/family led and oriented DRR communication and learning projects given more credence and attention. My research with #CERT and #Listos in the US is showing that these can have a more significant impact on long term cognition, behaviour sand action towards disaster risk and response. Relevance…See More

Hi Justin

It has been a while since we last met. Hope you are fine and the studies are progressing well.

I have been working on a project on various methods for teaching disasters to kindergarten children since Feb. 2010. There is a section in the project that aims to introduce methods that are used in different countries for teaching disasters (such as earthquakes, floods, volcano, etc) to kindergarten children. I was wondering if this request can be posted on the edu4drrwebsite, so I can hear from other members about the experiences they have in their countries in this regard.

I would appreciate your assistance.

Regards

Hello Justin.. yeah, been a long time ne! Come to Japan again, for sure I'll be here at least till the end of October. Yep yep when you were in Japan last August I was doing the project in Indonesia. One of the activities was to introduce a disaster game to kindergarten teachers and children, and further created the adapted game into local context together with the teachers. I just heard that last week the game has started to be practiced also in another city! :) Umm.. as for my current activity, other than writing, I am now preparing a small program for discussion about climate change in a Japan-ASEAN youth exchange program. I will be the facilitator, starting from 30th October till 25th November, and the program will be held on a cruising ship ^ ^ I am so excited. Will update about it later :)

Thanks a lot for actively updating the news and studies about DRR! I think I owe you a lot for this.. :)

Justin,
I did a detailed research on cyclone risk and role of natural buffers like mangroves, casuarinas, or man made structures like dikes in reducing the risk to lives. I found mangroves playing a very strong protective role and reducving risk to human lives by more than 50%. Of course, I analysed total deaths and total human population at risk in the study area.

Hi Justin. Thanks a lot. I'm writing up my thesis at the moment so I'm coming across stuff all the time. I'll be to sure to share anything good. We are not doing so well with DRR education in Australia it seems. Lost of room for improvement. There still seems to be an overriding perception that kids can't do much. Which we all know is far from the truth! Best, BT

Gender and disaster risk reduction in Europe and Central Asia: Workshop guide for facilitators

This guide is designed for facilitators and trainers working to incorporate gender perspectives in disaster risk reduction (DRR) programmes and initiatives. It is meant to assist workshop participants— including practitioners and officials from the United Nations, national governments, civil society organizations (CSOs), and other institutions—in...

Using paired teaching for earthquake education in schools

Disaster education plays a key role in reducing vulnerability and increasing safety and community resilience to disaster risks. Geoscientists can inform mitigation and resilience strategies as they collect and analyze data relevant to disaster risks. However, many of the approaches they use to engage with the public involve one-way, asymmetric communication,...

Safe and Resilient Cities (Self-paced)

The course will expose city officials and practitioners to cutting edge tools on vulnerability assessments, policies and programs, stock-taking and gaps analysis, and financial access. The discussion will also focus on decision making under uncertainty to identify options and establish priorities, making the city more resilient to climate change impacts...

Economics of Climate-Resilient Development (Self-Paced)

In this course, you will learn the basics for developing economically viable climate-resilient plans. The course starts with a review of the scientific consensus on changes in climate patterns and projections to the future, and explains the rationale for countries to develop climate-resilient plans that will help them to move away from a business-as-usual...

Introduction to the Open Data for Resilience Initiative (OpenDRI)

This short course provides an overview of the approach and toolset developed by the Open Data for Resilience Initiative. Major topics covered include the rationale and practices of the open data movement, tools for sharing geospatial data, community mapping and citizen science for disaster and climate risk management, and new approaches for communicating...
