Full Name: N.Sabarinathan Father Name: Nataraj Age 13 years Meenatchipatti PO Name, Taluk District Ponnusangampatti (P.O),Thuraiyur (TK), Trichy (Dt) Tamilnadu – 621001 Sabarinathan is studying Class VIII in Panchayat Union Middle School, Kiliyanoorpatti. His parents are Mr.Nataraj and Mrs.Danalakshmi. He has a younger brother Barathi who is studying Grade V in the same school. His parents are employed as daily wage labourers under the 100 days labour scheme (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment – MGNRE) run by the Government. Work under the MGNRE Scheme is not on a continuous scale. Labourers are appointed as and when work arises. The family is totally dependent on the wages they earn. The rapid climate change and irregular monsoons that has brought agricultural productivity in recent years has forced the local residents either to migrate or seek employment that is available in various forms. With their few earnings his mother has to meet out the entire family’s necessities. She was unable to get her children all the basic educational materials they required. His mother avails the rations which are available at lower rates from the Govt. ration shop. Often they have rice porridge or any bland rice for their lunch. Non-vegetarian food is taken only during festive seasons. Besides meeting out the family necessities with their few earnings, they also have to take care of elderly grandparents who are totally dependent on them. In spite of their very poor situation, his mother is very interested in educating her children. Sabarinathan is one of our ESC students for the past three years. He scores good marks in all subject with the exception of English. However the repeated coaching at the centre has helped him improve in this subject. He gives regular attendance at the centre, studies his daily lessons, completes his school work and clears any doubts with his tutor. At the tuition centre he hadn’t proper writing materials with him. He used to borrow them from his friends and complete the work at the tuition centre. He wore torn uniform and hadn’t proper footwear to go to school. Considering his family situation and the change he showed towards studies, he was extended the Educational material support from SPPD. With the material support extended to him, he is happy that he has all the required educational materials with him. Besides, he wears foot wear, carries his school materials in a school bag and now he is able to concentrate more in his studies.

Extreme weather events

About 11,000 extreme weather events killed more than 528,000 people and caused economic losses of around US$ 3.08 trillion between 1996 and 2015. Which countries faced the maximum brunt? How can we prevent and prepare? The statistics is intimidating, but it is important to contextualise ongoing climate policy debates, especially the international climate discussions.

Ten most affected countries

Africa, the host region of the UN climate summit 2016, is severely affected by extreme weather events with four countries ranking among the 10 most affected countries in 2015–Mozambique (1st), Malawi (3rd), Ghana and Madagascar (joint 8th position).

Disaster preparedness club formation among Corporation schools

There’s no harm in hoping for the best as long as you’re prepared for the worst.”

We are all subjected to various hazards (flooding, wildfires, tornadoes, etc.). Many people want to prepare in advance but are unsure of where to start, receive conflicting information, or are deterred by the cost of some preparedness measures. While some activities can be costly, there are plenty of things you can do that are low cost or even free. Remember, preparedness is a continual process and your personal preparedness can change over time.
