Disaster risk reduction is part of sustainable development, requiring a community-based and multi-sectoral approach. Thus, the best way of enhancing disaster preparedness is educating the citizens, by providing information that can help during emergencies.
UNDP in Armenia ImpactAim Venture Accelerator team jointly with partners from ISTC Foundation and Enterprise Incubator Foundation (EIF), has created a new practical tool for citizens – patrast.am, aimed to educate and ensure disaster response preparedness among the young and adult population of Armenia.
The content of patrast.am is developed thanks to huge support of Crisis Management State Academy of Armenia, DRR National Platform/ARNAP foundation, in coordination with the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Armenia.
The tool includes guidance for:
● Coronavirus pandemic (#COVID19)
● Psychological first support
● First aid
● Natural hazards (earthquake)
● Cybercrime protection
● Air-raid sirens
We will be updating the content as we go! The mobile app for IOS and android is coming soon! Stay informed and take care of yourself and your surroundings. For additional information, please visit: patrast.am
