Disaster risk reduction through schools: a groundbreaking project

Source(s):  ActionAid International (ActionAid)

This document presents the objectives of ActionAid’s five-year Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) through Schools project (2006-11) aiming to: (i) support the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action through innovative, grassroots DRR programmes; (ii) build local communities’ capacity to act on their own behalf and secure their basic rights, using Participatory Vulnerability Analysis (PVA); and (iii) advocate for governments to uphold their responsibilities to protect their populations. It also introduces the concepts of disaster risk reduction and Participatory Vulnerability Analysis (PVA), and highlights progress to date against all five pillars of the Hyogo Framework for Action in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Ghana, Malawi and Haiti.
