In response to UNICEF’s recognition of an increase in disaster risk, due in part to rapid urbanisation, environmental degradation and climate change, UNICEF has developed a Programme Guidance Note on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). In support of this, a series of five Technical Notes on Health, Nutrition, Education, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Child Protection have been developed. These are intended to help practitioners identify how sector work can contribute to reducing disaster risk. This one-page summary provides a quick introduction to DRR and Child Protection.
