Country risk reduction profile: Disaster Risk Reduction in China

Natural disasters occur frequently in China, affecting more than 200 million people every year. These include floods, earthquakes, and droughts. In the wake of the Sichuan Earthquake in 2008, which brought great trial to the people of Sichuan and China as a whole, Save the Children implemented the DRR Sichuan Earthquake Programme reaching 3000 children directly and 6000 adults indirectly.This DRR project is part of a broader programme involving health, education, and protection. It involves working with children, adult community members and teachers on activities that help the community and schools prepare and reduce the impact of disaster. Through child participation, Save the Children has reduced the disaster risks facing children, their caregivers and their communities in Sichuan townships
