Reducing Volcanic Risk (English)
This 23-minute program is designed to prevent volcanic eruptions from becoming volcanic disasters using three steps: identifying hazardous areas, monitoring volcanoes, and developing and testing an emergency plan. Examples from around the world - Japan, Columbia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines - are used to show how these steps are needed to save lives during volcanic emergencies.
