Building Disaster Resilient Communities Good Practices and Lessons Learned

This publication is a joint effort of the “Global Network of NGOs for Disaster Risk Reduction”, an emerging network of national and international NGOs aiming to reduce disaster risk worldwide. The idea of publishing a compilation of good practices in Community-Based Disaster Risk Reduction (CBDRR) has come out from a consultative meeting held with the core members of the “Global Network of NGOs” in Geneva, in October 2006.
