This study was commissioned by the IFRC as part of the global initiative on “Effective law and policy for addressing child protection in disaster risk management” and implemented by Uganda Red Cross Society. The overall goal for the study was to assess the effectiveness of Uganda’s current systems of law, policy and legal frameworks in providing child protection during disaster and in
disaster risk management. The study also documented the advocacy gaps and opportunities for effective child participation during policy formulation including the current discussions on the Climate Change Bill, revision of the Red Cross Act, Wetlands Bill, and the National Disaster Management and Preparedness Bill.
