Traditional knowledge and Red Cross disaster preparedness in the Pacific

Source(s):  Australian Red Cross

This report demonstrates that existing disaster preparedness techniques could be more effective if used together with traditional knowledge. It intends to look at ways of using existing traditional knowledge in Red Cross disaster preparedness activities in the Pacific region. It suggests that in disaster preparedness, traditional knowledge combined with scientific knowledge could make a large difference to the survival of Pacific Island communities during natural disasters, and could strengthen the Pacific Disaster Management Partnership and make better use of the help provided by Australian Red Cross and Pacific national societies at the same time.
