Dossier éducatif : “Let’s learn to prevent disasters!”– jeu Riskland

La SIPC/ONU et le Fonds des Nations Unies pour l’enfance (UNICEF) ont co-produit « Let’s learn to prevent disasters! », un dossier éducatif destiné aux enfants. Il comprend un jeu de société “Riskland” qui offre aux joueurs l’occasion de connaître la démarche à suivre pour réduire l’impact des catastrophes naturelles en répondant à des questions au fur et à mesure du déroulement de la partie. Le kit et le jeu peuvent être adaptés aux différentes menaces qui affectent les communautés et être traduits dans diverses langues. A ce jour, le kit est disponible en anglais, en espagnol, créole haïtien, maya kackchiquel, népali, portugais et espagnol, et des traductions dans 15 autres langues sont actuellement en cours de réalisation.

Pour recevoir un kit (en anglais) et un cd-rom contenant les illustrations et le texte à utiliser pour les adaptations et les traductions, veuillez contacter [email protected]


Translate and adapt the educational kit and Riskland for your community!

UN/ISDR and UNICEF are pleased to provide the text and artwork of the educational kit “Lets learn to prevent disasters!” and Riskland game for adaptation and translation to raise awareness of disaster risk reduction.

The educational kit and Riskland may be adapted as appropriate. For example, the basic idea for the kit may be used but instead accompanied by drawings created by a local artist. Alternatively, the original artwork or text may be changed to reflect local hazards, culture and conditions. Even if the kit may already exist in a given language, a country or region may prefer to adjust the language and drawings to reflect local expressions or characters. The only limit is your imagination!

We request that all reproductions of the education kit include the ISDR and UNICEF logos (available on the CD-ROM with the artwork). For alternative formats of the logos and requests to include logos of other participating organizations, please contact UN/ISDR. We would appreciate for 5-10 copies of the new version to be sent to UN/ISDR to further promote and encourage inter-regional experience sharing and information exchange in disaster reduction.

To receive a kit (in English) and CD ROM of the artwork and text (in Coreldraw 10/11 format) for use in adaption and translation, please contact [email protected]
