This Handbook is a review on existing literature and case studies in India and the Philippines which have a specific focus on integrating children into Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) policies and programmes. It is part of a course organized by the Asian Disaster Preparedness Centre on how to successfully carry out community disaster risk reduction. With increasing focus on child participation in development and post disaster experiences, international NGOs and global institutions recognize the need to advocate for child led disaster risk reduction (CLDRR) programmes, disaster risk education in schools and school safety initiatives.
