Community Engagement

Disaster risk reduction requires strong community engagement.

Community Engagement

HKJCDPRI collaborates with different organisations and schools on “Community Campaign on Disaster Resilience” to deliver public awareness and education campaigns, tailored to the specific potential hazards the community is facing. 
 
Through the campaigns, participants will be able to learn range of skills and knowledge, to become more resilient to the disruptive events most likely happened in their communities.
 
HKJCDPRI aims to involve participation ultimately from all sectors for disaster risk reduction, but priority will be given to the more vulnerable groups – including but not limited to the elderly, children, women, ethnic minorities and people with disability.
