UNISDR created a concept for reducing disaster risks that focuses of strengthening the capacities of vulnerable societies and promotion of sustainable development. The Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) aims to substantially reduce disaster loses and 168 UN countries have adopted this framework. The HFA consists of 5 Priorities for Action and this thesis has a particular focus on DRR education in Primary Schools, which comes under Priority 3 (knowledge, innovation to build a culture of safety and resilience at all levels). The aim of the research was to how the organisation of DRR and DRR education in Indonesia affects the implementation process and to assess whether this contributes to a reduction of children’s vulnerability. The theoretical basis of this thesis is the HFA guidelines that provide a norm for how DRR activities should be organised and the PAR model was used to assess vulnerability. The research aimed to gain an insight from the DRR education implementing organisation’s point of view. Interviews were carried out and a DDR education conference was attended. The main finding is that strong policy from the Ministry of Education is important for the implementation and sustainability of DRR education. And without it, a reduction of children’s vulnerability cannot be guaranteed.
