The primary objective of child-centred disaster risk reduction (CC-DRR) is to strengthen children’s skills so that they understand the risk of disasters in their communities and are able to play a role in reducing the risks and impacts of potential disasters. Historically, the approaches embodied by CC-DRR have remained on the margins of Australian disaster risk reduction (DRR) policy, research and practice.
