Guide to Facilitating Community-Led Disaster Risk Management

This guide builds on previous manuals produced by CRS and CAFOD, adding new sections on how to strengthen community leadership and participation mechanisms, and how to integrate climate change adaptation. This guide will support you as you promote a community‑led, inclusive and accountable approach to managing disaster risk, whether you are working on a development program, a disaster recovery intervention or on a specific disaster risk management project. Its step‑by‑step instructions, examples, tips and lessons learned by experienced community mobilizers and facilitators are relevant for both urban and rural communities, and to addressing risks created by slow‑ and rapid‑onset hazards.
