Publication Overview/Description

China has suffered 151 earthquakes measuring from 6.5 to 7 on the Richter scale between 1964 and 2013. The China Earthquake Administration suggests that more are likely to occur in the future.

Save the Children China with support from Swiss Re launched the program entitled Disaster Risk Reduction: from Recovery to Resilience – Implementing Child-centered Disaster Risk Reduction in Sichuan, China in 2012.

Asian Disaster Preparedness Center was invited to provide technical support in running a three-day training course on child-centered disaster risk management. The program introduced a new concept to the region by focusing on reducing risks and building resilience with a child-centered perspective.

The following Impact Story is a recording of ADPC’s observations upon their return to the implementation area.
