The Role of Children in Adapting to Climate Change

Published on 1 November 2007

Children’s voices on disaster risk reduction (DRR) have been sidelined by disaster management and
relief efforts targeted at adults. The latest collaborative research by IDS and Plan International
addresses this imbalance. It examines how children’s views can be heard within different policy spaces
and challenges assumptions about their lack of agency. Understanding the benefits of child-centred
DRR approaches is informing further research into the role children might play in addressing the
multiple threats to their futures posed by climate change.
