Higher education institution network in disaster resilience – A critical game changer in Asia

Source(s):  Promotion of Sustainability in Postgraduate Education and Research Network (ProSPER.Net)

A well-updated education will help the country as well as the region to have successful learners and well- informed citizens who can build resilience in society. Quality education not only helps to bring economic prosperity in the region, but it also improves individual as well as the institutional caption on climate change mitigation, adaptation and impact reduction. Education is central to reorient efforts towards a new path for development with sustainability. It is also possible to achieve other SDG goals to its fullest extent through education. Education can also be a roadmap to support the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030. It is also necessary to develop new products services as well as promote further development and dissemination of Standard practices and operational guidance to enhance disaster preparedness. Policy introduction and implementation at various levels through multidisciplinary educational curriculum and incorporation of disaster risk knowledge in formal and nonformal education can strengthen the capacity at all level (regional, National and local) to understand disaster risk and also help for effective risk communications. Multi-institution engagements and multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary approach will not only enhance Global partnership, but it will also help to mobilize shared knowledge, technology and financial resources towards sustainable Development Goal.
