Fumiyo Kagawa and David Selby have completed their consultancy to the joint UNICEF/UNESCO Mapping of Global Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Integration into Education Curricula initiative.
Their remit was to ‘produce a comprehensive mapping of the integration of DRR in education sector policies, school curricula, and examinations together with mapping of learning outcomes in teaching and learning materials’. The fifteen-week consultancy involved annotation of key global, regional and national documents as well as scientific/academic papers, writing case studies of DRR integration in curriculum in some 30 countries around the world, and preparing an overview of key competencies and learning outcomes for DRR in the curriculum. Their report will be published by UNICEF/UNESCO in February 2012.
