Disaster Risk Reduction Projects

Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) is the most effective way to reduce vulnerability and minimize loss and suffering caused by disasters, contributing to development of child well-being. World Vision is committed to building the capacity of the most vulnerable, especially children, so that communities is prepared and equipped with appropriate skills and knowledge in face of emergencies.

School-based Disaster Risk Reduction

  • Provide DRR workshops to teachers;
  • Develop teacher's tool kits and evacuation drill handbooks to help schools conduct drills and teachers take more active roles in raising awareness about DRR and climate change;
  • Provide preparednessand early warning materials: fire safety equipment, broadcast systems, monitoring systems etc.

Community-based Disaster Management

  • World Vision integrates DRR into our development projects through awareness campaigns, community level training and simulations. This influence extended to other disaster prone areas where World Vision has worked in emergency relief.

World Vision is committed to promoting school safety and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in Asia Pacific for the past decade. It started its child-focused DRR programs across China since 2007 and designed a DRR teacher toolkit in 2010, assisting teachers to introduce knowledge of disasters and self-protection skills to children through interactive games. More than 101,000 students in over 250 schools have benefitted from the toolkit. You may view the video Disaster Risk Reduction Teacher Toolkit at the bottom of the page for details.
