Strategic targeting methodology: community selection manual

These guidelines have been developed for disaster risk management specialists, programme managers and technical staff to facilitate the selection of the most vulnerable communities in a country. The methodology described ensures a transparent, consistent and documented process that reduces external influences and power dynamics in the decision-making that leads to the selection of communities for DRR interventions using project resources. It also helps to improve coordination and reduces duplication of effort through the identification of multiple stakeholders working in similar areas or sectors. In addition, the methodology helps to explain to stakeholders, including communities, the reasons for selection or non-selection for support.
