The radio drama, “Vida quetequeremostanto” (“Life, we love you so much”) is the third in a series of programs on disaster preparedness produced for countries in Latin America. The first two programs focused on weather-related and geological hazards and the third focuses on community preparedness. It aims to increase awareness about how communities can address disaster risk reduction, to promote community safety and resilience in emergencies, and to increase the welfare and safety of citizens.
Several organizations supported the production of this program, including the International Secretariat for Natural Disaster Reduction (ISNDR), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, UNICEF, UNDP, PAHO/WHO, and UN Human Settlements Program (HABITAT), among others.
The radio dramas are designed for community, national, and regional transmission to raise public awareness about disaster issues. They are also valuable for training sessions and for encouraging dialogue in community settings. The program series is available at www.eird.org/radionovela/index.html
