Child-centred risk assessment: regional synthesis of UNICEF assessments in Asia


This publication describes the process, requirements and limitations of child-centered risk assessment, leading up to risk informed action planning in the different UNICEF programme sections. The paper outlines the importance of child-centred DRR in Asia and the Pacific and describes UNICEF’s actions to advance risk-informed programming. It presents UNICEF’s approach to child-centred risk assessments undertaken by six UNICEF offices in the region: India, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Nepal, Pakistan and Solomon Islands. It describes how assessment of natural hazards, climate change, child vulnerability, exposure and capacity were combined to produce these risk assessments, and points out key similarities and differences in the methodologies used.
