Project

Prevention of Disasters and Informatic Computer Technology (PREDICT)

Goal: The project proposal will develop actions that promote innovative pedagogies and methods for teaching, learning and assessment, and that support educators and learners to use digital technologies in creative, collaborative and efficient ways in the area of civil protection and disaster risk management.
All those activities (IO) that will be developed through the project implementation will be adapted for persons with disabilities, they will be able to use them online using special digital tools. The main accent of the project proposal will be updating and developing digital learning materials and tools, in particular, Open Educational Resources, open textbooks, and Free and Open Source Educational Software and games, as well as supporting the effective use of digital technologies and open pedagogies in education. This will include fostering synergies with research and innovation activities, and therefore includes Open Science and promoting new technologies as drivers of improvements in education policies and practices. The project will work also on new teaching methods and tools and the use of the European frameworks on the digital competence of educators, pupils, training of trainers, citizens and relevant organizations.

Research included a quantitative research method (questionnaire). This questionnaire has been made in order to get an insight in the level of knowledge on the crisis management system in the institution, to get an insight in the preparedness for reaction in case of catastrophe and the need to take measures for improvement of the preparedness for crisis management. We had a total number of 19 questions, 3 of them open-ended, other 16 close-ended; the first 6 questions were in line with the general information about the participants, other refer to the specific topic of our research. More specifically, we conducted a questionnaire with 53 people with disabilities (12 visually impaired, 28 hearing impaired , 10 with intellectual disability and 3 physically disabled), and with 90 persons without disabilities (students from primary and secondary mainstream schools).

In this paper we elaborate the preconditions of realisation of the right to protection in situations of disasters in three European countries - N. Macedonia, Spain, and Bulgaria, through overview of crisis management systems in those countries. Thus, regarding prevention, the risk assessment, the planning and the risk awareness raising, were analyzed, separately in each of these countries. Within emergency preparedness, the early warning systems were also analyzed. In addition, one of the research questions was the current emergency response, which was also analyzed in each of these countries. The aim of this paper is to identify the basic indicators of the current situation regarding disaster management, as well as to find out whether there is a need for improvement in some parts, in order to achieve full realization of the right to protection in situation of disaster. The research is based on analysis of the legal frameworks, official reports, and semi-structured interviews with representatives of the relevant state institutions in each of the countries.9 Keywords: Right to protection, crisis management system, prevention, preparedness, response.
