Original INEE Training Package Adaptation: Disaster Risk Reduction

This adaptation, which includes two packages, focuses on the impact of natural disasters on education and the links between Education and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). This training package was provided during a 3 ½ day training session used in 2009 in Haiti. It includes many of the basics of the original INEE training package, but includes case studies on DRR, DRR through Safe Schools, DRR through teaching and learning and DRR through Participation, Policy and Coordination. The Adapted Scenario relates the repercussions of the floods caused by the El Nino phenomenon on an agricultural region named "Cano Limpio". The floods have destroyed the majority of local schools and those still up are used as temporary shelters for the displaced populations. Families have lost everything, including their documentation and are being discriminated against and are suffering from psychosocial trauma.
