Author: Kathy Cologon and Jacqueline Hayden
Published by ARNEC, October 2011
The guidebook provides the background information on Early Childhood Development (ECD) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), and guides the readers through the processes for assessing the capacity and needs at community levels to further identify the next courses of action to improve ECD in DRR. It has been designed to be used by agents and organisations that have an interest in the wellbeing of young children and can be used to assist communities in identifying the needs and gaps in their DRR and support for young children. The guidebook was developed with the support of UNICEF Asia Pacific Shared Services Centre and Macquarie University.
