Challenge

Taiwan's natural environment is fragile. Potential natural disasters in Taiwan are flooding, seawater flooding, landslides, earth and rockfall, formation subsidence, coastal erosion, and earthquakes, etc. In recent years, under the impact of global climate change, Taiwan has increased the risk of natural disasters and the damages of natural disasters have become larger and larger. We must face up to the issue of disaster prevention and actively advocate it to the community.

Solution

The plan includes 1. Community disaster prevention activities: raise the community's awareness of disaster prevention, self-protection, and awareness of disasters; 2. Train community disaster prevention volunteers: lead community people to better understand their community disaster risks and responses, and understand mutual assistance and self-help Importance; 3. organize community disaster prevention and relief teams: carry out initiatives and drills for community residents.

Long-Term Impact

Through this project, we aim to build a security support network with the community to improve the community's resilience and self-protection capabilities. In 2019, 56 people took the disaster rescuers training, 245 community people attended the community disaster prevention training, around 1,500 people participated in the community disaster prevention education, and 121 children attended the disaster prevention education. In 2020, the number of beneficiaries would be 3,560 people.
