Creativity is the Natural Extension of Our Enthusiasm
Save the Children has been implementing a child centered DRR project titled ‘Protecting Children’s Rights through Child Participation in DRR in Bangladesh’ since January 2011. In this project, children are engaged in identifying hazard, vulnerability, and capacity assessment of their locality applying PRA tools. And also involve local community and Union Parishad to validate their findings to develop community risk reduction action plan. Children are also advocating for including children’s issue at union level disaster management plan and allocate finance to take local level mitigation activities. As the project has reached its third and final year of implementation, it was important to make a video documentary so that it can be used for sharing the learning with the other stakeholders concerned with DRR and for advocacy issues too. Creative Media Limited has developed a video documentary on the CCDRR project to highlight the roles played by children in risk reduction.
