The Foundation for the Coordination of Information Resources for Disaster Prevention (FundaCRID) signed an agreement with UNICEF to launch a website specializing in resources on education and risk management. This website will make it easier for authorities, teachers, technicians, and cooperating institutions to access materials about risk reduction for the education sector. It will also open the door to greater specialization for the Regional Disaster Information Center (CRID) in a critical area of risk management, allowing the development of products and services that are tailored to the needs of the educational community.

This agreement provides CRID with new opportunities for cooperation with other partners, which, like UNICEF, are active in the field of education and risk management, including ministries of education in Latin America.

A practical manual on information tools and resources on disaster preparedness in the education sector is being developed. This manual is one of the products of a DIPECHO project that CRID has been collaborating on since November 2008. For more information, contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
