Education and knowledge can save lives

Children are among the most vulnerable population group during disasters, particularly while they are attending school. They often die as a result of a lack of risk awareness and poor quality of the physical infrastructure. In Pakistan, for instance, more than 17,000 school children died while attending class during the October 2005 earthquake.
