Nigeria: Ogun takes disaster management to schools


Disaster Risk Reduction clubs will be established in secondary schools in Ogun State, Nigeria, within a program to strengthen crisis manangement knowledge of young people.

“NEMA believes that children should be centrally engaged in reducing the risk of disasters in order that the negative impacts on communities are significantly reduced. Children have the capacity to contribute, bring a unique perspective to DRR preparations and have the right to play a part in making themselves and the communities safer, thus contributing towards a culture of safety”, said Zonal Coordinator of National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), TPL Iyiola Akande.
