Perspectives on future directions of risk-informed education: lessons from Japan and Türkiye

journal contribution
posted on 2024-06-27, 16:13 authored by Ayse Yildiz, Rajib Shaw

While pre-disaster risk reduction, preparedness, and mitigation measures are important, disaster events often provide a window to development. They can allow learning from the response efforts, impacts, and recovery processes, which can improve overall development resilience and guide future risk-informed education programmes. This study offers an approach for future directions of risk-informed education based on the lessons from the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami of 2011 and the recent 2023 Turkey-Syria earthquake. The approach is based on direct field observations, interviews, and case studies. Ten key lessons are presented as the future direction of risk-informed education for the disasters caused by natural hazards. This study aimed to help policymakers, educators, and practitioners improve community resilience and guide the development of effective risk-informed education programmes by using the opportunities provided by disaster events. This article contributes to the continuing discussion about disaster risk reduction, resilience building, and sustainable development by highlighting the importance of continuous learning and adaptation in the face of ever-changing risks and threats.
