Publication Overview/Description

This advocacy note focuses on the 2009 and 2011 earthquakes listed above, as well as the 2012 and 2013 windstorms. The note seeks to provide an evidence- based case for mainstreaming disaster risk reduction (DRR) into the education sector as a cost-effective choice supporting local and national development. Since the foundation of the first school in Bhutan in 1913, the Royal Government continues to accord priority to its social sectors concentrating efforts on accessible education.
