Thank you very much for your kindly support to our consortium here in Indonesia by sent information about CDE to our International network. And we also formed an Aceh Disaster Education Forum (ADEF) last June, work together and closely with Education Department of Aceh Province as leading sector to Integrating Disaster Risk Reduction into School Education System. We (ADEF and Education Department of Aceh Province) made a workshop last month, on 15th of September 2008 and now we are on the process to make DRR teaching guideline and teaching material book for elementary school.
I am looking forward to get in contact with Yumei Wang.
