Building Resilient Communities: a training manual on community-managed disaster risk reduction.

Building Resilient Communities: A Training Manual on Community-Managed Disaster Risk Reduction has been revised in May 2013, now also including attention for Climate Change Adaptation and Eco Systems Management.

The Manual consists of four booklets:

CMDRR TRAINING DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION

MODULE 1: CMDRR CONCEPTS, PRINCIPLES, PROCESS

MODULE 2: FACILITATING CMDRR METHOD AND PROCESS

MODULE 3: SUSTAINING CMDRR

The manual was first developed in 2007 together with the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR). This manual is widely used in many communities all over the world and available now in 7 languages (English, Spanish, French, Bahasa, Bangla, Tamil, Hindi).

Cordaid started working on Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction (CMDRR) in 2005-2006, at that time in 10 disaster prone countries. Reducing people’s vulnerability, strengthening their capacity and reducing the risk of hazards are all components of CMDRR. Cordaid partners receive training in this field, while they in turn train local communities. Local people themselves learn how to analyze the hazards and risks in their context.
