CHILD-CENTRED RISK ASSESSMENT - Regional Synthesis of UNICEF Assessments in Asia
PDF File Size: 741 KB | Download   
Disaster risk is a function of hazard, vulnerability, exposure and capacity. It is time and place-specific, leading to potential losses in lives, health status, livelihoods, assets and services. Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) is a systematic approach to reduce disaster risk by minimizing vulnerabilities, and preventing or limiting (mitigating and preparing for) the adverse impacts of hazards. As such, it is both a humanitarian and a development
concern.
With a mandate that combines humanitarian relief and development work, UNICEF recognizes its crucial responsibility to integrate DRR into its programmes. UNICEF’s extensive field presence before, during and after a disaster also means that UNICEF is ideally positioned to address disaster risk and undertake risk reduction measures (UNICEF, 2012b). In collaboration with governments and NGOs3 UNICEF promotes child-centred DRR in order to strengthen the resilience of children, families and communities to shocks and stresses relating to natural hazards, climate change, violent conflicts and epidemics.
