Community puppet theatre – Flood Resilience

The community puppet theatre was used as a participatory alternative method to strengthen flood resilience in Tabasco, Mexico. This creative approach allowed to communicate disaster risk reduction information in a humorous and different way, which children and adults can easily relate to. The theatre spreads knowledge but also promotes social cohesion and organization in the community.

The Flood Resilience Alliance (2013 -2017) is a five-year partnership that set out to develop a model that would deliver effective community flood resilience programmes at scale and contribute to shaping the flood resilience agenda of policy-makers and donors.
