Child-Centered Disaster Risk Reduction – Evidence from the Philippines
Among the existing Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) approaches, this paper focuses on Child-Centered Disaster Risk Reduction (CCDRR), known for recognizing and building on children and young people’s capabilities. The paper examines the existing body of evidence by including three systematic reviews that encompass over 84 studies with quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods and a quasi-experimental study. In parallel, acknowledging the additional challenges that low- and lower middle-income countries might face, this review delves into the evidence available on Child-Centered Disaster Risk Reduction interventions in the Philippines. For the evidence on interventions in the Philippines, ten studies have been considered, ranging from qualitative case studies to programme evaluations and empirical research.
