Disasters reduction begins in schools: strengthening of local risk and disaster management in the education sector in Central America

This document addresses the “Local Risk and Disaster Management Strengthening in the Education Sector in Central America” project at the request of the CECC and as part of the framework of the PRRD (Regional Project for Disaster Reduction) of the CEPREDENAC, UNICEF and the UNISDR.

The project financed by the European Union – Humanitarian Aid Office (ECHO) throughout of disaster preparedness program of V Action Plan (DIPECHO) – seeks to recover and systematize experiences and reproduce practices and instruments regarding disaster risk management in the field of education in six Central American countries, allowing such promotion and reproduction at a local level. The experiences identified in the region will facilitate the elaboration, validation and feedback of the methodologies and tools used by Central American ministries of education, contributing to the process of regional integration through the exchange of local experiences and updating Central American Education Plan for Disaster Risk Reduction.
