Synopsis: Participants will ‘become residents’ of a poor fishing community where they trade to meet their basic needs. Since their area may be at risk from disasters, however, they must also use their meagre resources to keep their community safe, should disaster strike. Their choices may leave them homeless, jobless or entirely devastated, with loss of life and a ruined economy. They will come ‘face to face’ with environmental concerns, early warning options, training for disasters, protection of their livelihoods, corruption, abuse and sheer, raw survival.
After each session, participants, field workers and disaster survivors will discuss ways the world can be made more resilient in the face of disaster risk.
