Global Disaster Statistics

The Red Cross produces an Annual ‘World Disasters Report’. In the appendices are disaster related statistics over a ten year period. What we’ve done here is summarised in a composite table the numbers of disasters over the past decade; the number of people killed and affected over this period; and the damage caused over these ten years. We’ve then graphed the statistics for these four separate elements! The results may surprise you !

Teach like a Champion

Enclosed are twelve ‘Teach like a Champion’ (TLAC) teaching tips. One of the challenges facing development and humanitarian practitioners in the field is that they are invariably and regularly faced with teaching and capacity building situations. These tips are designed for those people who have not necessarily received any formal training in the art and science of teaching.

Ten Seed Technique
