Publication Overview/Description

"Fully Prepared— Learning to live with the monsoon floods" captures the story of ADPC's program, “Reduction of Vulnerability to Floods in Thailand”, focused on Community Based Flood Risk Management (CBDRM). The program was implemented with support from USAID/OFDA.

The 2011 floods in Thailand had devastating consequences across the country. This story follows the Ban Koh Pra community in Ayutthaya, Thailand, as they implement various measures to build resilience to floods, including early warning systems, CBDRM Committees, and public-private partnership.
