Child-led disaster risk reduction is gaining recognition as a critical component linked to community based disaster management. It is a child-centred community-based framework that fosters the agency of children and youth, both in groups and as individuals, to work towards making their lives safer and their communities more resilient to disasters. The approach entails the ethical and meaningful participation of all children in assessing, planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating disaster risk reduction (DRR) programs.
