Brief Description The project involved the development of the �Disaster Information Kit for the Caribbean Media, 6th Edition�. The kit provides background information on natural and man-made hazards to help reporters when covering disasters and hazards in the region. This was among three publications which were revised through funding from UNESCO as part of its on-going development educational work in the Caribbean.The other two publications are Family Emergency Plan� and the �Community Emergency Plan� .Digital versions of the first three publications are available on the websites of CDERA and UNESCO. A date for the release of the revised school text book is pending. The project also developed 19 word games on six different hazards which introduces a way that is both fun and enjoyable in which to learn about serious subjects. These are available in the formats of cross word puzzles, anagrams, hangman, and quizzes. The games as well as the Family Emergency Plan and the Community Emergency Plan are available online at http://www.cdera.org/preparedness/
