This analytical report aims to respond to the question of how the five priorities for disaster risk reduction (DRR) in the Children’s Charter for DRR can be achieved, exploring the enabling factors and challenges in implementing the Charter priorities. The Children’s Charter for DRR was launched at the United Nation’s International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR) Global Platform for DRR in 2011 and consists of five priorities for DRR, including addressing climate change, identified by children from 21 hazard-prone countries. These are: safe schools; child protection; information and participation; safe community infrastructure and “building back better, safer and fairer”; and reaching the most vulnerable.
