Publication Overview/Description

Community based disaster risk management (CBDRM) is a process in which at-risk communities are actively engaged in identifying and taking steps to reduce their vulnerability to disaster risk and build their capacities to manage them.

Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) is an implementing partner for a 3-year programme looking at Institutionalising Sustainable Community Based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM). The first phase involves collecting case studies of successful CBDRM initiatives to better understand the factors that need to be in place for community projects to be sustainable and replicated successfully elsewhere.

Your case studies will be compiled into a global and regional publication. As a result, this is an excellent opportunity to get your work published and gain international recognition for your work and the communities you work with. Some of the organisations that submit a case study will get invited to an international workshop to analyse the case studies to determine the critical factors for sustainable CBDRM. You could be one of them!

We also want to identify in which countries CBDRM has been institutionalised, or established as the norm.

If you have a case study of an example of CBDRM that you think other communities can learn from, please fill in this template and return to ADPC no later than January 29, 2018 through Mr. Irfan Maqbool (, and Mr. Israel Jegillos (
