Introduction

Myanmar is exposed to a range of natural hazards, including cyclones, floods, earthquakes, storm surges, landslides and droughts. The Global Climate Risk Index 2015 cites the country as being - together with Honduras and Haiti – one of the nations hardest hit by natural hazards in the last two decades and where more disaster events are likely to occur in the near future.

10 August 2015 - Life-saving supplies are getting through to some of the hardest hit communities in Rakhine State after heavy monsoon rains and Cyclone Kormen caused large-scale flooding in Myanmar.

Plan International has started providing clean drinking water, hygiene kits, aqua tabs and tarpaulins to almost 17,500 people in Minbya Township.

More than 590,000 people have been affected across the country, including 200,000 children. To date, 89 people have died, and more than 217,000 acres of farmland have been destroyed.

Disasters from natural hazards are increasing and becoming more complex. Governments are falling short of the promises they made under the Hyogo Framework for Action, and globally, not enough is being done to reduce risk for the most vulnerable people, including women, children, and people who are marginalized and living in poverty.

Posted by Jimmy Tuhaise, Plan Emergency Response Manager

Jimmy Tuhaise Ahead of World Humanitarian Day on 19 August, Emergency Response Manager Jimmy Tuhaise blogs about the impact of Plan’s work with children in conflict-hit Myanmar and Mali.

I’ve been doing this job for over 10 years. I like humanitarian work because it saves lives. What you do for a child within the first few weeks of an emergency or disaster makes a difference to the rest of their life.

INTRODUCTION

Disasters, with ever increasing frequency and intensity, are a major humanitarian concern. But disasters can be mitigated and their impact minimised if people take steps to reduce risks. Disaster risk reduction (DRR) measures are far less expensive compared with the cost of loss of life and the cost of managing its consequences. When actions to reduce risk are taken before a disaster strikes, the extent of the loss and damages is diminished and the resumption of education is swift. Disaster risk reduction is significant for education response in emergencies.

Hundreds of thousands of children in Myanmar face new dangers as the new school year begins and they return to buildings ravaged by Cyclone Nargis.

Only a handful of the 3,000 schools destroyed or severely damaged by the cyclone have been repaired, leaving 360,000 children in affected areas without a safe place to learn.

Unsafe school buildings, a shortage of teachers and lack of trained professionals to offer emotional support to those who have been traumatised by the disaster, all put children returning to school at risk.
