Community Based Disaster Risk Reduction in Sri Lanka: A Compendium of Good Practices

The compendium presents good practices of the community based disaster risk reduction (CBDRR) approach implemented under a Disaster Preparedness project in the North and East of Sri Lanka, supported by the Disaster Preparedness ECHO (DIPECHO). Learning drawn from the project can be replicated and built into future interventions. The compendium also highlights the post-conflict scenario, and how CBDRR approach can be a gateway to strengthen women’s leadership, governance, sustainable livelihood and agricultural practices.
