This map depicts the countries participating in, and location of National Platforms for Disaster Risk Reduction, of the ECHO-funded UNISDR media trainings on disaster risk reduction in 2010-2011.
The media have an important role to play in creating awareness and distributing information before, during and after a disaster. By exploring the root causes of disaster and their social dimensions, the media are a key ally for disaster risk reduction (DRR).
The UN's disaster risk reduction office (UNISDR) conducted a media training programme to educate journalists and media-facing government officials about DRR issues. Organized by UNISDR in collaboration with Thompson Reuters, the project was funded by the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Directorate General (ECHO).
