China and Cambodia: Integrated programming and cooperation with local authorities boost communities’ disaster preparedness

The China and Cambodia examples, each dealt with separately in this case study, illustrate how integrated programming addresses community risks and needs in a more holistic way and how working closely with local authorities can support the smooth implementation and sustainability of actions that lead to safer and more resilient communities. The two boxes at the end of the case study summarize learning from both country examples and highlight key points to consider when planning integrated programming or implementing CBDP programmes in cooperation with local authorities.
