Dedicated to DRR Practitioners who Involved Children and Young People in Disaster Risk Reduction

The number and magnitude of disasters are increasing.
The reality of this situation clearly emphasizes the need to promote actions for risk reduction which can hinder without building DRR education in youth.

It is our younger generation who will find solutions to the risks that have been created over the past two centuries.
Mobilizing youth to play key roles in practical community based actions for DRR and Climate Change Adaptation.
But for this to happen we must invest our trust, ideas and resources in our youth.
