Community knowledge and awareness raising
In a changing climate, with increased risks of extreme weather and disasters, the public needs to have a greater awareness of the risks they face and what they can do to be better prepared.
The IFRC and Save the Children have developed the Public Awareness and Public Education (PAPE) key messages as a tool that supports communities to build their knowledge-base and put in place their own measures to stay safe.
This includes efforts such as Y-Adapt, a curriculum for young people consisting of games and playful activities to help them understand climate change and take practical action to adapt to the changing climate in their community.
The Climate Centre and its partners designed at least 45 games about humanitarian issues like disaster preparedness, gender, food security, health, migration.
Early action tool designed by the IFRC, the Global Disaster Preparedness Center, in partnership with Google to increase the speed and dissemination of disaster preparedness and risk reduction messages.
The First Aid app includes Everyday First Aid content with more than 20 scenarios, including localized videos and illustrations.
