This training manual – a joint effort by Save the Children Sweden and Save the Children UK – is based on the experience of the pilot project in tsunami affected provinces in southern Thailand as a guide for organising activities to strengthen children’s capacity in disaster risk reduction in schools and communities. It aims to promote leadership by children and young people in planning, analysing, and conducting disaster risk-reduction activities. The manual consists of the following topics: Preparation: Getting started; Disaster risk reduction: concepts and definitions; Risk and resource community mapping; and, An educational campaign on disaster risk reduction.
