YOGYAKARTA – VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS, BURIED TREASURE AND THE SEARCH FOR COMMUNITY RESILIENCE.

A year ago I travelled to Indonesia to attend a workshop on culture and disaster risk reduction. This is my story....Having flown half way around the world to share my research on how transformative learning impacts on adaptation and resilience towards disaster risk and make links with Indonesian researchers, I find myself staring at a clock. But the hands on the clock don’t move. Because they can’t. Ever. The clock I am looking at is a permanent record of a pyroclastic surge that enveloped the…See More

Government Response to Flooding in UK - MP's take similar position to that outlined in my paper.

This morning I noted the following article on The Guardian website:"Government failing to protect communities at risk of flooding", MPs say http://gu.com/p/4kjb3Below is my response with a link to the paper that outlines my resetach in more detail:The need for a more ideal response from government, rather than the idea of response is what may be required. I recently pointed this out in a journal article in which I argue that governments need to critically…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
