It is tailored for high-risk school communities in the region within the context of education for sustainable development. It presents important key concepts and examples of disaster risk reduction and management at the school level. It is intended for school heads and teachers to help them coordinate, set up, maintain and sustain effective DRRM programs in their school communities.
SEAMEO BIOTROP believes that conservation of the region's biodiversity is everyone's responsibility. Recognizing the unique and rich biological resources we have and understanding their real values are critical considerations toward having more meaningful conservation efforts. Photo documentation is one practical way towards actualizing this purpose. It is for this reason that SEAMEO BIOTROP is launching this regional biodiversity conservation photo competition.
