This report details the learning and evaluation of a project designed to build the capacity of both government bodies and local communities, including children, to better respond to, prevent, and mitigate the impacts of disasters. The experience of the project is that children are often the most vulnerable to and adversely impacted by disaster, but also that they can play a crucial role in changing people’s attitudes toward and behavior in anticipation of disaster. The four prongs of Plan International's approach are preparedness, capacity building, mitigation, and prevention. The project’s aims were allied with Plan International’s mission as well as with those of the national Nepalese government and the international community.
