Quantified Cities Movement for Disaster Risk Reduction (QCM-DRR) is developed and implemented by CDSA through UNICEF support for the exclusive purpose of creating Resilient Cities by identifying Disaster Risk Reduction strategies. QCM-DRR will use the pre-existing QCM framework to encourage adolescent and youth participation for decentralized urban DRR.

CDSA has convened a School Alliance for Resilient Cities to empower children to articulate their needs for improving their quality of life. The Alliance will bring schools together to help children become more skilled, knowledgeable and sensitized citizens while increasing their preparedness for natural disasters. 

QCM-DRR will train adolescents and youth (school children) in collecting data on disaster risk indicators and enable them to collect, collate, analyse, interpret, report on disaster risk and resilience indicators, and formulate plans and monitor and manage DRR strategy in their neighbourhoods. These plans are presented to the local representatives and administration along with media so all urban stakeholders are on the same page and citizens can improve our city continuously.
