Campaign of sustainable and resilient universities for the incorporation of reduction risk of disasters on superior education on America and the Caribbean

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR)

This paper explores the Campaign of Sustainable and Resilient Universities, which was created between October 2016 and December 2017 by the University Network of the America and the Caribbean for Disaster Risk Reduction. The campaign fulfils the four Sendai Framework priorities and entails 10 essential tasks and 28 activities intended to help superior education institutions develop competencies for the incorporation of DRR in a systematic and gradual manner. The report concludes that the critical elements for the functioning of a university facing disasters are: resistant buildings, having a socialized response plan with the entire university community, having resources to rehabilitate lifelines, and having a trained team that is equipped for response.

This paper is a contribution to the 2019 edition of the Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR 2019).
