Effective Education for Disaster Risk Reduction - Learning Matters.
Earlier this week, the lake reached the top of the natural dam, and began to spill out - rapid erosion of the landslide debris has authorities worried about a potential breach, and locals have been evacuated as officials
monitor the developing situation.
Most of us may not as the global news can be biased towards the north. When I made this resource and asked my classes if they had heard about it on the news, they had not. But they had ALL heard about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. In the UK the Geography Association, has a 'Geography in the News' section. I am now instigating a 'Geography NOT in the News' section on this site. I am attaching the Hunza_River_Disaster.ppt to this blog and I hope you can download and share. I have also added it to the edu4drr slideshare. which can be accessedfrom my profile or by searching for edu4drr on slideshare.net. If you use the resource, please let me know how useful it was.
