A practical guide to advocacy for disaster risk reduction

Source(s):  International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)

This guide aims to further enhance the skills, knowledge and proficiency of disaster risk reduction practitioners to advocate and communicate on disaster risk reduction in Asia Pacific. It aims to be user friendly rather than academic in tone in order to present disaster risk reduction and advocacy concepts in a clear and accessible manner.

The book is written in three sections: (i) section one, building safer communities - working together to reduce risk, build capacity and save lives in Asia Pacific, aims to provide a basic understanding of some key aspects of disaster risk reduction; (ii) section two, actively advocating for a safer Asia Pacific, aims to explore the meaning of advocacy and the role it plays in the red cross red crescent; and (iii) section three, advocating for humanitarian values and vulnerable groups in disaster risk reduction, aims to explore the issues of discrimination, violence and lack of respect for diversity, and provide tools to support disaster risk reduction advocacy efforts regarding people with disabilities, women, older people and children.
