Natural Disasters (disaster risk reduction)
Disasters such as flooding, earthquakes and droughts have the potential to destroy homes, places of work and farmland. This can be devastating for people in developing nations as they have to cope with the loss of the very heart of their way of life. When educating young people about such disasters it is important that they understand not only the causes and effects but also the solutions to help mitigate against the consequences. This section provides links to resources on how Practical Action works to reduce the risk faced by families who are living in regions threatened by natural disasters.
