Initially the project team reviews and analyses existing local information on climate change and disaster prevention. They survey other student-teachers to determine their awareness of climate change and disaster prevention, and they identify priority issues for the local region to integrate into the training content of the ‘Toolkit’.
Through workshops with experts and student teachers, the toolkit is developed, adjusted, finalized, and used for training. An evaluation draws lessons and suggests follow-up measures.
The initiative enhances the knowledge and skills of student-teachers to cope with climate change and natural disasters. As the future teachers in schools in Vietnam’s central region, they can spread knowledge and capacity among pupils and community, increasing capacity to cope with the impacts of climate change in this area of high vulnerability.
The Da Nang local government ‘Climate Change Coordination Office’ (CCCO) acknowledges that this project can have significant contribution to other climate change adaptation and resilience efforts in the city. The CCCO plans to collaborate with this Youth Group and their project results.
