Mainstreaming disaster risk reduction in the education sector: Lao PDR, Philippines, Cambodia

Source(s):  Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC)

These studies on impacts of disasters on the education sector in Lao PDR, Philippines and Cambodia builds an evidence-based rationale to raise awareness on integrating DRR concerns into education policies, programs and plans and to advocate for changing practices in school construction especially in incorporating disaster risk resilient features in new school construction.

The publications under the project, MDRD-Education has been implemented by the UNDP and ADPC, with support from ECHO. Under the ADPC facilitated Regional Consultative Committee (RCC) on Disaster Management umbrella, this collaborative (ECHO-UNDP-ADPC) project was implemented as a major contribution to the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action. The project was designed with the primary focus to assist the Ministry of Education in three RCC countries to implement a Priority Implementation Partnership (PIP), working with the National Disaster Management Organizations, to undertake integration of DRR into the secondary school curriculum and to promote resilient construction of new schools using research on the past impact of disasters on the education sector.
