Child-centred Hazard, Vulnerability, and Capacity Assessment and Planning in Urban Settings
To help develop Child-Centred Disaster Risk Reduction (CCDRR) in urban areas, this report provides new elements for practitioners to better use Hazards, Vulnerabilities, and Capacities Assessment (HVCA) tools. In youth groups and in urban contexts, a wide range of HVCA methods and toolkits are already being used. Despite examples of good practice, more detailed critical analysis of processes, problems and opportunities when applying HVCA guidance must be conducted. This report examines the challenges of enabling children’s participation and helps create space for their voices to be heard.
