Climate extreme: how young people can respond to disasters in a changing world

This "child-friendly" climate change report considers the vital role children play in community disaster risk reduction activities in Asia. Instead of seeing them as nothing more than victims in disasters, it gives children in the developing world knowledge about how to prepare and reduce risks they could face when disasters impact their communities. Presenting examples of crucial roles children have played in disaster preparedness, community education, hazard identification and in evacuation and first aid during disasters, the learning tool is a more digestible version of the Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation (SREX), produced by a panel of climate experts.
