Children's MIRA: Listening to Children During Emergencies
Children's right to be heard does not cease in situations of disaster or in their aftermath. Children have evolving capacities -- their knowledge and skills grow as they age and gain more experience. The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child encourages State parties to the CRC to support mechanism which enable children to play an active role in both post-emergency, reconstruction, and post-conflict resolution processes. The Committee specified that their views should be elicited in the assessment, design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of programs.
