Child-centred disaster risk reduction: Can disaster resilience programs reduce risk and increase the resilience of children and households?

Source(s):  Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience (AIDR)

This paper discusses current progress and challenges on the role of child-centered disaster risk reduction and resilience (CC-DRR), including disaster risk reduction and resilience education programs for children and youth. This paper focuses on the question of 'how can we create, evaluate, implement and scale up CC-DRR programs, to reduce risk and increase resilience for children, youth, schools, households and communities?'.

As proposed in the paper, the ways forward for CC-DRR research are:

  • for researchers to partner with end users in emergency management agencies, schools and policy contexts;
  • to build research-informed capacities;
  • to co-develop a set of research-driven schools with end users that include:
    • developing stakeholder and theory- and research-supported CC-DRR/Disaster resilience education (DRE) programs;
    • building CC-DRR/DRE programs that include routine monitoring and evaluation of outcomes to ensure effectiveness;
    • promoting scaled, sustainable implementation of cost-effective CC-DRR/DRE programs.
  • to evaluate outcome effectiveness and implementation with theory-driven evaluation;
  • for tools to take account of agency and school resource issues and ensure that they used are pragmatic and actually can, and will be used.
