Children and youth make up half of the world's population. With the increased frequency and
exposure to hazards, it is imperative that they play a meaningful role in addressing risks towards
building more sustainable solutions that reflect pressing and emerging priorities.
This side event will showcase examples of children and youth’s participation in the
implementation of the Sendai Framework, including challenges, best practices, and future
opportunities. It will follow up on commitments made by and for youth during the WCDRR,
including presentation of achievements to date and forward-looking plans towards 2030.
