Disaster reduction and human security
Education for sustainable development, case studies and best practices:
This report is a compilation of case studies and grapples with the crucial question of merging disaster management education into the broader agenda of education for sustainable development. It shows how communities, scientists, activists, non-governmental organizations, teachers, students and policy makers have sought to protect against the ravages of nature and against the harmful impact of reckless and inconsiderate human action upon the environment.
The report contains 93 case studies from 41 countries and regions in different parts of the developing and developed world. These case studies represent an impressive accumulation of firsthand knowledge which, by taking disasters and disaster preparedness seriously, can contribute to building societies that are both safe and sustainable. A cross-disciplinary multi-stakeholder and implementation-oriented approach is adopted in all the case studies, focusing on the basic needs of communities.
