This final report summarises progress in the 3 year (2014-16) project, Building Best Practice in Child-Centred Disaster Risk Reduction (CC-DRR). The first 3 years have included scoping and review, the development of a conceptual framework to guide the research, a utilisation roadmap, and the initiation of a pilot and main research. The CC-DRR Project conceptual framework reflects a parsimonious research narrative designed to build on research-policy-practice progress to date but, critically, solve problems and challenges across that nexus. The narrative itself has two guiding questions as follows:

  • Are CC-DRR programs effective?
    • Are the stakeholder supported and evidence-based?
    • Do they reflect practice-based evidence, including support for child and youth learning outcomes and for DRR and resilience outcomes?
    • Do they produce cost savings-related outcomes?
  • ​Can CC-DRR programs be implemented effectively, including in scaled and sustainable ways?
    • In a range of practice settings, including schools and communities?
    • In ways that leverage and capitalise on disaster- and emergency management-related policy? 

This report goes into more detail on this program of research and related activities, including summarising progress in CC-DRR research to date, as well as some important challenges that have been identified.
