"The importance of hearing the voices of young people in order to shape decisions to combat disaster risk and climate change has been underscored," said UN Resident Coordinator Michelle Gyles-McDonnough made the observation during a recently held ceremony to recognise International Day for Disaster Reduction.

"One of the simplest disaster risk reduction measures we can possibly take is to empower young people and to ensure they are actively involved in disaster risk reduction and part of making their cities and communities resilient," she said.
