Title: Disaster Risk Reduction in School Curricula: Case Studies from Thirty Countries
Authors: UNICEF
UNICEF, UNSECO
Issue Date: 2012
Publisher: UNICEF
Abstract: The researchers have discovered no comprehensive, systematic listing of DRR learning outcomes; there are simply subject specific lists and unit- specific lists. An analysis of the lists reveals a heavy predominance of knowledge-based outcomes. Skills-based learning outcomes do feature but they are often restricted to practical skills and do not respond to the community engagement and change agency ambitions of DRR. The treatment of attitudinal and dispositional learning outcomes is, at best, tokenistic. A comprehensive listing of generic DRR learning outcomes is included in the report. The list is more than a summation of the present state of the art of DRR learning outcome development but rather seeks to fill the gaps in an aspirational way. The thirty case studies cover all UNICEF regions and represent all levels of development.
