Issues Although most Vietnamese students are aware of the potential threats, many still lack survival skills and experience in real-life post-disaster situations.
Compulsory education only includes theoretical knowledge
Students have never been effectively and practically trained for the arrival of a natural disaster, or how to survive during and after a storm, etc
There is a big difference in students' awareness between 2 cities which are influenced by the disasters in different frequency.
Action Plan Cooperate with countries that have suffered a lot of damage from past disasters, namely Japan, to jointly create a program on how to prevent them and distribute it to public & private institutions all over the country.
