Last week, the Children in a Changing Climate Coalition hosted an event on safe schools as part of the Third Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in Geneva. UNICEF Japan Ambassador Agnes Chan gave a keynote speech on the critical role of school safety and education in reducing the impact of disasters.

Before the event, Dr. Chan spoke with UNICEF Radio moderator Amy Costello about her latest visits to earthquake-devastated areas of Japan, where she met with children and teachers who survived.
