AYON hosted a youth discussion on ‘The Role of Youths in Disaster Risk Reduction’ as a part of its dialogue series. Youths from diverse background are attending the discussion.
The program was held at AYON hall, Kathmandu on 11th April 2018. Around 16 youths participants from different disaster-affected communities were involved in the dialogue. The main aim of the program was to discuss on the youths’ role in order to respond to disasters and also create a Youth Led Disaster Response Team.
There was a fruitful discussion on the topic and all the participants came to a conclusion that it’s a great idea to form a youth-led disaster response team. They also agreed that they will be proactive to mobilize the team in order to distribute relief during the disaster. There are 13 members who agreed to become a member of the Youth Led Disaster Response Team.
The dialogue aimed at creating a Youth-led Disaster Response team who would come together and take immediate actions during and post disasters.
