Living with disasters and changing climate: children in Southeast Asia telling their stories about disaster and climate change

Source(s):  Save the Children International (SCI)

Living with disasters and changing climate is about children, disaster risk reduction, and climate change. Based on Save the Children’s experience in child-centred disaster risk reduction in Southeast Asia, this book is a collection of children’s stories and statements about their views on disasters and climate change and their impact on the children’s lives, and how they can do something about it. Their stories focus on building community capacity, and show how children can contribute to community risk mapping and early warning, among others.

Part 1: Introduction to the world of increasing disasters describes changing world with increases in disasters and a changing climate that affect millions of people including children. This section also takes a glimpse of Save the Children’s work to help children during disasters and how it works with children and their communities on disaster risk reduction.

Part 2: Children want to take action and tell their stories of the impact of disasters and climate change on their lives as well as their activities to overcome the effects of disasters and reduce the impact of future disasters and climate change on their lives.

Part 3: What children want to see happening collects children’s wishes – what they want to see happening with regards to disaster risk reduction in their communities.
