Global key determinants of a successful CBDRR

The International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC), as the ‘world’s largest humanitarian and development network’ is committed to building safety and resilience through its Community Based Disaster Risk Reduction (CBDRR) programmes . As a movement the Red Cross-Red Crescent (RCRC) has significant knowledge and experience of implementing CBDRR programmes.
However, defining the aims and objectives of such programmes and the critical factors that influence their impact remains a challenge. This is particularly acute when comparing outcomes and approaches between communities, countries and regions.
