The participation of children and young people in emergencies

The Participation of Children and Young People in Emergencies: A guide for relief agencies based largely on experiences in the Asian tsunami response has captured some of the most interesting and inspiring examples of children’s involvement in the tsunami disaster response and recovery phases, as collected by UNICEF and a wide array of partners and UN agencies. The examples of children’s participation in emergency response included in this guide show that their active involvement in relief and rehabilitation efforts are essential and should be a necessary and integral part of any humanitarian programme. Experiences with the participation of children and young people in emergency response, in rehabilitation and in reconstruction, demonstrate that they can contribute. These contributions have helped families and communities to survive and recover

Thruths and myths about community participation in post-disaster housing projects

It has been widely accepted by policy makers and commentators, funding bodies and NGOs that the key to performance in low-cost housing projects in developing countries lies in community participation. This paper proposes that this premise (extensively discussed in the theory and emphasized in grant applications) is not clearly reflected in the realities of reconstruction practice. In fact, there are many ways in which users/beneficiaries can participate in post-disaster reconstruction projects but not all types of participation ensure the best deployment of their capabilities. The systems approach shows that there is a continuum of possibilities for participation; at one extreme, users are involved in the projects only as the labour force, whereas at the other, they play an active role in decision-making and project management

¿Qué tiene que ver el ahorro con la capacidad de recuperarse tras un desastre natural?

Invertir en infraestructura es crucial para el desempeño económico y las perspectivas de crecimiento de un país. De hecho, no sólo puede hacer la diferencia en las vidas diarias de la gente a través de mejores caminos y escuelas, sino que de hecho puede salvar vidas. Durante la última década, Chile y Haití brindaron dos ejemplos contrastantes de esto después de sufrir terremotos, debido a sus distintos niveles de preparación y capacidad de recuperación tras desastres naturales. Aumentar el ahorro nacional es un desafío de políticas clave para América Latina y el Caribe. Ahorrar permite invertir. Así es como se conecta en última instancia el ahorro con la capacidad de recuperación tras los desastres naturales. Aún más importante, el ahorro es el camino que lleva a una región con mayor capacidad de recuperación, y donde la falta de capital ya no es una limitación para el desarrollo
