Children and disasters: understanding impact and enabling agency

This report contributes to building an improved understanding of 1) how different intensities of disaster affect children in different contexts and 2) the structures needed to realise the benefits of engaging children as active citizens and agents of change at the sub-national and local scale. This improved knowledge is vital in order to ensure that development and risk reduction programmes address children’s specific vulnerabilities and bolster their resilience to the increasing number of disasters.
