Innovative Approaches to Engaging Communities in Participatory Dialogues that Enhance Community Disaster Preparedness

In pursuit of more efficient ways to engage communities along the Zambezi River in Namibia in a focused dialogue that leads to action on disaster preparedness and risk reduction, the American Red Cross (ARC) began collaborating with the Prototyping, Evaluation, Teaching and Learning Lab (PETLab) at Parsons New School for Design (New York, USA) and the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre (RCCC) to develop new approaches – namely participatory games.
