Abstract

Disaster risk reduction (DRR) in education is a key issue in all countries to build resilience to disasters. In the post-2015 framework for DRR, the important of education and awareness-raising program has been agreed as the top priorities in the policy of disaster. Awareness program of education and efforts is everyone’s responsibility rather than governments and the media implementing and promoting agencies only. The aim of the study is assess the extent of understanding about disasters knowledge among college students and staffs. This research used a cross-sectional study design for disaster risk reduction planning wherein it attempts to assess the disaster-related knowledge, preparedness, adaptation, awareness, and risk perception among the students. This paper has been based on the primary survey. The questionnaire was prepared with open- and close-ended questions. This questionnaire was used to collect basic data and respondent’s perception about the disaster management. A survey was conducted in one of the Higher Educational Institute of Delhi University using questionnaire, field observation, interview techniques, informal interviews, interaction and discussion with students, teacher and non-teaching staffs. A sample of 200 respondents was taken consisting of students, teachers and non-teaching staff in Dyal Singh College. The data has been analyzed using statistical and cartographic techniques. This mitigation measure of disaster risk reduction is important in enhancing resilience capacity and ensuring sustainable development pathways and provides various man-made and natural disaster relief processes for disaster management. These research papers suggest a policy to improve the transformation of scientific knowledge into policy and to increase mutual understanding, partnership and collaboration for better policy outcomes in the goal of sustainable development and disaster management.
