IFRC Community Based Disaster Risk Reduction Study: Lessons Learned from the Tsunami Operation CBDRR Programmes

In November 2010, the IFRC commissioned Arup International Development (Arup ID) to undertake a study of programmes implemented after the Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2004 in order to “identify and document lessons learned in implementing at scale CBDRR projects to strengthen community safety and resilience [and] use its large evidence base to research new ideas and contribute to the wider efforts in improving CBDRR work within the IFRC”. More specifically, the study sought to identify the characteristics of a safe and resilient community and the key determinants of a successful CBDRR programme.

This report on the Lessons Learned from the Tsunami Operation CBDRR
Programmes is informed by Arup ID’s research. It describes the relevance and
application of the characteristics and key determinants throughout the programme cycle, in addition to capturing key lessons and recommendations on the design and implementation of CBDRR programmes at scale.

The final report was published in July 2012.
