This project aims to develop and apply a set of tools that enable parents to engage with their children in a meaningful discussion on household disaster preparedness planning, by using participatory processes. Four phases of research have currently been completed:

  • workshop with key stakeholders for initial consultation;
  • tool development by conducting consultations with practitioners, children, and their parents;
  • pilot testing in three schools in Jakarta, Indonesia; and
  • replication testing in a school in Bandung, Indonesia.

Initial results have shown that the tool is successful in motivating parents to discuss household preparedness with their children and an effective way for developing household preparedness plans at scale.
