Air pollution has become part of life for people across large parts of Asia.  ,Thick smog chokes cities and their inhabitants as black exhaust from diesel engines clogs the air on daily commutes. In rural areas, views of mountains and valleys are often obscured by a haze that comes from distant urban and industrial sources as well as from local cooking and agricultural fires.  Air pollution contributes to climate change, and it also threatens the health and quality of life of those forced to live with it.

Disaster risk management  preparedness efforts should include education at different levels on risks prevention, coping and adaptation strategies. This, according to Prof. Jakob Rhyner, the Vice Rector of the United Nations University in Europe and Director of Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), will improve knowledge on risk management and cooperation from communities when disaster occurs. Prof. Rhyner made the suggestion during a presentation on the topic “Future Challenges to Risk Management” at a seminar organized by the United Nations University Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU- INRA), in Accra, Ghana. Citing disaster case studies from different countries in Europe and Africa, Prof. Rhyner noted that coping strategies for natural disasters including tsunami, flood, drought, and sea-level rise, are often not enough to mitigate their impacts on livelihoods.
