Good practice in community based disaster risk management

This document presents good practices from the GOI-UNDP Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Programme, which envisages accelerating capacity development for disaster reduction at the national level and in some of the most-vulnerable regions in the country through community-based and gender sensitive approaches.

It focuses on awareness generation and education, training and capacity building for mitigation and better preparedness in terms of disaster risk management at community, district and state levels, and strengthening of state and district emergency operations centres for accurate and timely dissemination of warnings.

The document is the amalgamation of six years of lessons learned, translated into an operational advice for development agencies, foundations, international NGOs and other people working in the field of disaster risk management.
