Background

The Community-based disaster risk reduction (CBDRR) course provides an opportunity for practitioners to learn essential skills and knowledge in community based disaster risk management to address implementation challenges in a systematic manner. CBDRR participants acquire tools and obtain knowledge on “how to” design and implement programs for reducing disaster risks and vulnerability and building community capacity to promote a ‘culture of safety.’

Through exercises and simulations participants practice risk assessment and risk management planning. The participants will have a chance to learn about globally acknowledged programs and projects on community based disaster risk management from leaders of these initiatives, with a particular focus on examples from South and South East Asian and Pacific regions.

The CBDRR course tackles the issues in disaster risk management from a developmental perspective, discusses the issues and problems concerning sustainability, replication/ adaptation of CBDRR practice and integration of risk management plans with government and non‐government development plans.
