Children’s Action for Disaster Risk Reduction. Views from Children in Asia

This publication seeks to document the perspective of children from seven Asia countries (Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Nepal, Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam) on how disasters and climate change affect their lives and their rights. The report highlights their views on what they believe their role can be in addressing disaster risk and climate change in their community and what they are expecting from their government, NGOs and the private sector. By presenting their own experiences of participating in disaster risk reduction activities, it aims to highlight the capacity of children in order to inspire other children and youth, as well as encourage local governments, NGOs, and the private sector to support child-centered community risk reduction and climate change adaptation.
