As a contribution to the building of training to support the communication of tsunami risk to the public, the IOC of UNESCO has developed the TsunamiTeacher Information and Resource Toolkit. The Toolkit brings together a wealth of new and existing information on tsunamis into a single, reliable, and verified global resource that is widely accessible to people, groups and governments around the world.
There is a wealth of information online where you can learn more about natural hazards and how to prevent them from turning into disasters.
We have produced a series of five fact sheets that you can download, containing key facts and lots of links to further information.
Many experts and organisations participated in the contents and the making of this game. UNISDR secretariat would like to thank particularly:
Ana Trehoan, expert on education.
Charles Kelly, Disaster Management Expert for the flood and hurricane scenario.
Johann G. Goldammer, from the Global Fire Monitoring Center (GFMC),
Fire Ecology Research Group, Freiburg University / United Nations University (UNU) Freiburg GERMANY for the wildfire scenario
Scott Kiser, and Dennis Feltgen, National Weather Service, Tropical Cyclone Program Leader for the hurricane scenario

Melanie Ashby, from the Emergency Management Australia
