A compilation of good practices in child-centered disaster risk reduction and management of UNICEF partners in the Philippines
Disasters disproportionately impact children - worsening nutritional status, increased incidence of health issues, increased dropout rate, weakened protection mechanisms, and inadequate provision of basic social services are just some of the impacts of emergencies to children. Given the magnitude of potential impact, it is imperative to ensure that even during emergency situations, children’s rights are protected, and their well-being is a priority.
This document is based on the experiences of UNICEF’s partners in implementing the Child- Centered Disaster Risk Reduction Programme . It's a collection of good practices that have proven to be effective in ensuring children and youth participation, organizing communities for risk reduction, mainstreaming children’s concerns in development planning, working with local governments, and addressing specific risks of children. It also offers practicable lessons and recommendations on how each initiative can be implemented and replicated in the communities.
