A female teacher leads a class of young students on the topic 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.
