GAYO in partnership with Ghana’s National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) is collaborating with the Africa Youth Advisory Board for Disaster Risk Reduction (AfYAB DRR) under the Africa Union Commission (AUC), to organize a Quiz competition among four Senior High Schools in Ghana.
Globally, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) provides guidance on how to significantly reduce disaster risk. In Africa, the Programme of Action (PoA) guides different stakeholders in DRR. Both SFDRR and PoA recognize the state as leaders in the implementation, follow up and review of the document. In addition, both documents recognize children and youth as active and strong stakeholders in DRR.
