and the United Nations Children’s Fund
(UNICEF) have jointly produced an educational
kit for children called “Let’s learn
to prevent disasters!”. It includes the
board game “Riskland” whereby players
learn about what they can do to reduce disaster
impacts by answering questions and advancing
along the board’s winding path. The kit
and game may be adapted according to the different
hazards communities face, and translated into
multiple languages. To date, the kit is available
in English, Haitian Creole, Maya Kackchiquel,
Nepali, Portuguese and Spanish, with translations
into over 15 other languages currently underway.

For example, the basic idea for the kit may be used but
accompanied by drawings created by a local artist.
Alternatively, the original artwork or text may be changed
to reflect local hazards, culture and conditions. Even
if the kit may already exist in a given language, a country
or region may prefer to adjust the language and drawings
to reflect local expressions or characters. The only
limit is your imagination!
request that all reproductions of the education
kit include the ISDR and UNICEF logos (available
on the CD-ROM with the artwork). For alternative formats
of the logos and requests to include logos of other participating
organizations, please contact UN/ISDR. We would appreciate

to further promote and encourage inter-regional experience
sharing and information exchange in disaster reduction.
