Ibasho Case Study on Social Capital

The case study describes the “Ibasho” approach to strengthen the social capital of communities, particularly those recovering from disasters and epidemics, by giving community members of all ages and abilities a place where they can develop deeper connections with each other. The Ibasho approach has been implemented in Japan, Philippines and is currently being developed in Nepal. This case study was developed as part of the ‘Call for Case Studies on Coalition Building’ initiated by the Global Disaster Preparedness Center.
