Training Details

According to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), CBDRRM is defined as “activities, measures, projects and programs that aim to reduce disaster risks and are primarily designed by people living in high-risk communities, and are based on their urgent needs and capacities.” CBDRRM promotes the cultures of self-help and self-empowerment. Through CBDRRM, the community is able to implement DRRM in a more organized and systematic manner by themselves using their own capacities.
