New EU Project Aims to Improve Multi-Hazard Early Warning and Build Disaster Resilience in Coastal Communities in Asia

Over 20 experts from across Europe and Asia met in Colombo, Sri Lanka on March 17 to launch CABARET (CApacity Building in Asia for Resilience EducaTion), a new project funded by the European Union to foster regional cooperation for more effective multi hazard early warning (MHEW) and increased disaster resilience among coastal communities. The De La Salle University Social Development Research Center (DLSU_SDRC) was represented at the kick-off meeting by Dr. Marlon de Luna Era, who has been appointed as the Country Coordinator of the CABARET Project, and by Dr. Maria Caridad Tarroja, SDRC Director.

The aim of CABARET, a 36-month action project, is to build capacity for international and regional cooperation between Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) in Asia (Region 6) and Europe, and among Asian HEIs themselves. The project focuses on a subject area and a world region not sufficiently addressed by projects already being funded under previous schemes. Read more >>>

Study Investigating Kids Online Behavior Commences at SDRC

What exactly are the behaviors and practices of children when accessing the global ICT system through the Internet?  And do they know who to turn to if they find themselves in danger?

These are among the questions being addressed in the National Kids Online Survey (NKOLS) headed by SDRC Research Fellow and former Director Dr. Rhoderick V. Nuncio. The survey is at the heart of an evidence-based study being conducted through a grant from UNICEF Philippines, and is intended to contribute to developing informed and applicable policies and programs for a safer online environment for children.
