A2D Project regularly produces knowledge products and resources to help share our work to others and engage communities of practice in the exercise of mutual learning. Over the years, we have produced research reports, policy briefs, good practices documents, and other resources to build our knowledge base and share the stories of communities whom we have partnered with.

Specifically, this report showcases the application of the Purok System, an internationally renowned participatory whole-of-community approach to DRR, as a strategy to mainstream disability inclusion in community-based disaster risk management.
Learning from Haiyan: Translating Children’s Voices into Action for Resilience
This documentation report highlights the results of the S3CDRRM Project and its impacts on partner communities; key strategies undertaken; and valuable lessons learned for making DRRM processes child-sensitive, if not, child-centered. The findings presented in this document are largely the outcomes of children’s committed participation in helping to rebuild their communities from the effects of Haiyan with the hope of instilling a culture of preparedness and resilience among each other. It is hoped that the experience of working with children, their schools, and their communities may bring forth similar initiatives that promote children’s rights to fully participate in disaster risk reduction, resilience-building, and development.
