Child-centred risk reduction impacts on household safety - Evaluation toolkit development and testing: Research report

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

The purpose of this research is to understand and identify the potential for child-centred disaster risk reduction approaches to have a measurable impact on household risk reduction and resilience. Disaster risk reduction advocates promote educating children, parents, and teachers to identify hazards and risks, learn and implement risk reduction measures, and develop response capacity to cope with impacts.

Education administrators often expect or assume that learning from formal or informal educational activities will be passed on from children to household members, and/or from communities to parents and children. However, there is very little research on how learning is shared and what effect shared learning has on household risk reduction and response-preparedness. This research aims to learn what the research literature has to teach us about the child-parent transmission of safety knowledge and behaviour, and what kinds of approaches have the best prospects of long-term and positive impacts.
