Indonesia: Praying and preparing for their safe future

Located in the Pacific “Ring of Fire” Indonesia is often among the first countries to be hit by tsunamis. The 2004 Boxing Day tsunami was particularly devastating for Indonesia with over 280,000 people losing their lives. Still a significant number of schools remain in tsunami prone areas, driving the criticality of instilling tsunami awareness and evacuation as the only way to save student lives. With support from the Government of Japan, UNDP is assisting schools in Indonesia to assess tsunami risks, develop emergency evacuation plans and conduct safety drills.
