Good practices and tools on disaster risk reduction in education in Central Asia: compendium

This document addresses the issues of disaster risk reduction (DRR) in the area of education in the form of a compendium of various educational activities and initiatives, both in the formal and informal spheres of education, being implemented at regional level in the Central Asian countries. The compendium gathers materials on good practices, methodologies and tools on DRR in education, examples of which may be replicated in other parts of the Central Asian region in the future. The compendium has been developed as a result of the Knowledge Management Initiative, implemented by the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction in Central Asia (UNISDR) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) within the framework of the Disaster Preparedness Programme of the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid Department (DIPECHO) and financed by ECHO.
