Education is the key to risk reduction, be it environmental management or disaster risk reduction. Education has its different dimensions, from school, family to community education. Education is a process, which needs to be embedded at different levels of management and practices to collectively reduce the risk. While school education makes the foundation of the knowledge cycle, for effective knowledge use, it is required to link school and community education. The education is linked to enhanced awareness, and key reflection of education is seen in terms of actions. Disaster and environment education is practiced in different countries in different forms, based on the local socio-economic and cultural context. This book is an attempt to describe and demonstrate different aspects of education in an easy to understand form with practical field experiences. Book jacket.
