Risk Reduction Country Profile. Disaster Risk Reduction in Thailand

Following the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, part of Save the Children’s response focused on children’s participation in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). This programme had several components that included involving children in developing preparedness and evacuation plans and making DRR a part of primary and secondary school curricula. Save the Children, along with partners, concentrated on strengthening children’s capacity in disaster risk reduction in schools and communities and promote leadership by children and young people in planning, analysing, and conducting disaster risk-reduction activities.
