You know that feeling when you taste the perfect version of your favourite dish? When all the ingredients come together into a delicious mix? When it comes to community-based disaster risk management (CBDRM), you don’t need to be an award-winning chef to put together a great recipe. Many actors at the community level have critical knowledge, experience and capacities with regards to building resilience, and have developed innovative approaches to reducing the everyday risks they face. Embedding these community-based approaches within policies and practices for DRR at national and local level is key to ensuring that Sendai Framework targets (especially Target (e)) are achieved and have lasting effect.
Join us for a CBDRM cooking session, where local chefs will share the perfect ingredients that make CBDRM sustainable (maintained over time) and institutionalised (established as the norm) within a national or local context, as found through a consultation process with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) from communities across Asia, Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean.
