Saving lives and property by mainstreaming disaster risk reduction into the education sector of Bhutan: a case for safer development planning and implementations

Source(s):  Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC)
Department of Disaster Management (Bhutan) (DDM)

This advocacy note seeks to provide an evidence-based case for mainstreaming disaster risk reduction (DRR) into the education sector as a cost-effective choice supporting local and national development. It focuses on major disaster events that took place since the approval of the 10th Five Year Plan: the 21 September 2009 and 18 September 2011 earthquakes, as well as the 2012 and 2013 windstorms.

This advocacy document is part of a pair developed in partnership with the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center. These documents are aimed at creating awareness of the importance of considering disaster risk reduction as an essential part of any new development project in the education and road sectors in Bhutan.
