Disaster Risk Reduction in the Education Sector: Vietnam

Save the Children in Vietnam has worked to develop the risk reduction capacity of children and teachers, linking schools and communities. In high risk areas, campaigns, competitions, awareness-raising, and drills are implemented in communities and primary schools in cooperation with the Youth Union, the Women’s Union and the Red Cross. Children learn about disasters and climate change and safety skills through songs and games. In flood prone areas, Save the Children is working to see that children learn life-saving swimming skills, and has introduced floating backpacks (school bags) to protect children in the event of flash floods.

This poster contains a brief introduction of Save the Children’s work on Disaster Risk Management in Vietnam.
