COVID-19 is spreading human suffering, destabilizing the global economy and upending the lives of billions of people around the world. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 was adopted at the Third UN World Conference in Sendai, Japan, on March 18, 2015. The present Framework will apply to the risk of small-scale and large-scale, frequent and infrequent, sudden and slow-onset disasters caused by natural or man-made hazards, as well as the related environmental and biological hazards and risks. In addition, ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being at all ages is essential to sustainable development (SDGs).
UNESCO Office Jakarta, with generous support from Japan-Fund-in-Trust, and in partnership with Miyagi University of Education, Sendai, Japan will host a webinar on “Disaster Communication for UNESCO Sites”: Education for Disaster Risk Reduction Integrating SFDRR and SDGs for In-Service Teacher Training.
Long term school closures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic present an unprecedented risk to children’s education, protection and wellbeing. School reopening must be safe and consistent with each area’s overall COVID-19 health response. Therefore, we would like to have an opportunity to discuss reopening schools after the occurrence of disasters.
