However, the impact of these efforts is rather limited, if the local population is not aware of surrounding environmental risks. Moreover, it is important to include citizens in the disaster risk management systems at local and national levels to ensure citizen protection and to build towards a more resilient society.
Do you live in a region exposed to earthquakes, floods, wildfires or another natural hazards?Do you feel prepared to cope with natural hazards? Have you ever thought about being more actively involved in disaster risk prevention measures in your region?
Please take a few minutes to ﬁll in this survey and help UNESCO to evaluate the readiness of citizens around the world to cope with natural hazards.
