  7. 7.  Enhance the capacities of disaster vulnerable communities to respond to and cope with disasters Improve grassroots, community based institutions, who are the first respondents to any disasters Develop replicable models of preparedness Support national government in development of appropriate policy models in DRR and Response
  8. 8. • Larger visibility• Greater negotiating power• Cost reduction• Avoid duplication of efforts• Avoid reinventing the wheel
  9. 9. • Good demographic data and stakeholder analysis can lead to better mobilization• Mass Sensitization and awareness should start before CRA• Highlighting the economic value of preparedness facilitates mobilization• Flexible methodologies and process to match communitys priorities around day-to- day development issues• Capacitating community groups to access government resources creates motivation for continuous mobilization• Traditional ways of raising awareness can be more effective than using new technologies• Use of existing folk media/theatres and other culturally sensitive IEC materials for community mobilization and awareness• Encourage community level volunteers to participate actively in awareness raising• Schools are excellent platforms to disseminate DP messages: Child to family
  10. 10. • Respect to the knowledge of the community• Participation of diverse set of communities• Use of local resources with which the community associates• Contingency plan is a dynamic document which incorporates the needs and priorities of the community• Standardization of the tools• Focus on the process rather than the tools• Proper follow up with the community on the action plan• Develop the buy-in of the duty bearers towards community action plan
  11. 11. • Practical and time-bound demonstrations are more effective ways to build capacity than classroom training• All training should have a clear-cut follow-up plan to ensure that skills are regularly practiced and remembered• Capacitating UDMCs to access government schemes with the potential to reduce disaster risk motivates them to take responsibility• Strengthening the existing government programs through capacity building inputs• Opportunity cost of training• Non availability of trained personnel and standardized manual• Participation of women in the outdoor training
  12. 12. • Construction of the flood/cyclone shelter needs to have a very comprehensive approach• Ensuring community contribution and their participation in the whole process• For greater acceptability, the infrastructure created has to be sensitive to the needs of the vulnerable community
  13. 13. • Construction of the flood/cyclone shelter needs to have a very comprehensive approach• Ensuring community contribution and their participation in the whole process• For greater acceptability, the infrastructure created has to be sensitive to the needs of the vulnerable community
  14. 14. •Identification and engagement with key stakeholders with a plan•Linkage between the village level institutions and governmentdepartments/programs to leverage resources from thegovernment•Sharing regular project updates with the government strengthensadvocacy work•Sensitization of media people enhances advocacy•Lack of understanding on rights and entitlements in various legalinstruments and guidelines (SoD, DM Act)•Limited capacity and power of the local governance structure
  15. 15. •The most vulnerable and marginalized population have certainstrengths that needs to be identified and utilized•Peer support system needs to be developed•Involvement of the children to the program has to be through joyfullearning process•Technical input from specialized agency• Identification and mapping of the most invisible part of the society• Non availability of authentic data• Taboo and socio-cultural beliefs associated with the persons withdisability• Mainstreaming
  16. 16. •DIPECHO is a short duration program and it should be layered withexisting programs•Shared Visioning•Engaging with the government ensures the sustainability of theprogram•Sharing among DIPECHO partners and key DRR stakeholders avoids theprobability of duplication•More resources for M&E. 5-10% of the budget•Meaningful participation of women and the most vulnerable section ofthe society•Retaining the institutional knowledge base
