Recognizing signs of natural disasters
In 2017, an elementary school teacher in Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia, utilizes the climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction (CCA / DRR) curriculum in classroom, educating her students on how to recognize signs of natural disasters common to the region.
The USAID-funded CADRE + program aims to increase climate change awareness and adaptation practices to build the resilience of vulnerable communities in the Republic of the Marshall Islands and Federated States of Micronesia. At a school level, the IOM designed (CCA/DRR) curriculum has now been endorsed by the Department of Education at national and state level and is being taught in many schools across the region.
