thesis
posted on 17.05.2021, 00:33 by Revathi Nuggehalli Krishna
This PhD research aimed to co-develop and deliver a Disaster Resilience Education intervention with and for disadvantaged and marginalised children in the inner-city slums of Chennai, India using a participatory approach. The findings from this thesis re-emphasized the need for active child participation in Disaster Risk Reduction. Not only did children learn practical skills related to disaster preparedness, parents and community members reported that it helped them, both, as family units and communities in being better prepared for disasters overall. Furthermore, the intervention showed preliminary support for a positive impact on children’s mental wellbeing and resilience.
