Does integration matter? A holistic model for building community resilience in Pakistan.

This paper analyses an integrated community-based risk reduction model adopted by the Pakistan Red Crescent. The paper analyses the model’s constructs and definitions, and provides a conceptual framework and a set of practical recommendations for building community resilience. The study uses the process and outcome-based resilience index to assess the effectiveness of the approach. The results indicate that the integrated programming approach is an effective way to build community resilience as it offers a number of tangible and long-lasting benefits, including effective and efficient service delivery, local ownership, sustainability of results, and improved local resilience with respect to the shock and stress associated with disaster. The paper also outlines a set of recommendations for the effective and efficient use of the model for building community resilience in Pakistan.
