Community-led partnerships for resilience

Organized communities living and working in hazard prone settlements bring perspectives and priorities to policy discussions that are distinct from the rest of civil society. This report documents a number of case studies where grassroots women’s organizations are working in partnership with their local or national governments to effectively manage disaster and climate risk in poor communities. The report aims to demonstrate the value of facilitating community-led partnerships for strengthening disaster and climate resilience.
