Children’s Action for Disaster Risk Reduction

Sometimes children just seem victims of disasters with little power themselves – it is good to see that children are now been given opportunities to develop skills and present their ideas and even turn them into action.

Children’s Action for Disaster Risk Reduction

 

 

 

UNISDR and Plan“What would be the future of our settlement? Maybe, this village would exist only in name! It is frightening even to imagine how terrible our life would be and that of future generations,” the voice of Jonisha from Nepal and other children and youth in Asia is documented in Children’s Action for Disaster Risk Reduction 2012 – published by UNISDR and Plan International.

The aim of this publication is to provide children and youth in Asia a platform to report on progress made towards these commitments from their own point of view. By presenting their own experiences of participating in disaster risk reduction activities, it aims to highlight the capacity of children in order to inspire other children and youth, as well as encourage local governments, NGOs, and the private sector to support childcentered community risk reduction and climate change adaptation.
