An Advocacy Brief for Disaster Risk Reduction, UNICEF Regional Office for East Asia and Pacific


In East Asia and Pacific, UNICEF is among the leading agencies in several sectors in implementation and advocacy, including making child-critical services more resilient and working for and with young people: e.g., in shock-responsive social protection, education, health, mental health and psychosocial support, nutrition, child protection and water, sanitation & hygiene (WASH). UNICEF is committed to reducing risk and building resilience, before and after disaster.

This advocacy brief showcases UNICEF’s key messages and efforts in ensuring child-sensitive programming is incorporated in DRR and CCA plans, protocols and policies; providing technical expertise to government leaders and line ministries on multiple hazards (including in fragile and risk-prone contexts); promoting age- and gender-disaggregated research to inform decisions; and supporting children and young people to participate and lead in reducing risk at home, school and in their communities.
