Media in Disaster Risk Reduction

 The project aims to enhance media awareness and understanding of disaster risk reduction and managment and their vulnerabilities while covering man-made and natural disasters.  At the same time, the project will enhance the reporting skills of community journalists thus enabling them to produce more interesting and compelling stories on disasters and disaster risk management that likewise enhances better citizen awareness and understanding. 

News media are crucial to the advocacy for disaster risk reduction and play an important role in building and expanding constituency for climate smart communities and must therefore be engaged in a more sustained manner.
