This chapter introduces some myths of health promotion, the project cycle of health and disaster preparedness education programmes, needs assessment, project planning, programme implementation and monitoring, programme evaluation, and notes for organizers and participants of health and disaster preparedness education programmes. Concrete examples will be provided to put the abstract framework into use. This chapter integrates the themes in previous chapters with relevant insights gained from actual field experience in Asia, focusing on programme implementation field experience and lessons learnt, as well as the practical challenges and problems encountered in the field in rural Asian settings. It will also discuss the field-policy nexus, that is, the fulfilment of policy ambitions in such international policy frameworks like the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015–2030), and the Paris Agreement for Climate Change by rural field programmes in health, emergency, and disaster risk reduction.
