North Korea's road to hunger

How did it happen that about one million people died of starvation in North Korea in the nineties? Can we prevent such a disaster from happening again soon?

Pakistan team goes the extra mile

Nepal: Risk-reduction by Radio

If you turn on your radio in the mountain villages of Nepal, you can hear people singing about natural disasters.
 
Songs and radio drama have taught 80,000 villagers in the remote mountain areas of Nepal about floods, mudslides and earthquakes.
 
Each year these disasters destroy harvests, block paths, or in the worst cases, take the lives of residents of these mountainous areas. The short melodic jingles that play on the radio are easy to remember and remind people about good risk-reduction practices.
