Let the world learn from, and replicate, your good work in CBDRM.

GNDR and its member partners are collecting case studies of CBDRM best practices and will evaluate them through an evaluation framework. Regional workshops will be held to discuss and analyse the case studies, which will lead to a preliminary global report on critical success factors for CBDRM sustainability and institutionalisation.

Who can participate?

Any formal/informal organisation, whether a community based organisation, an NGO, a local government agency, or a self-help group, that is implementing a community based disaster risk management initiative can submit a case study. If you believe your project has some insight/ potential to contribute to increasing global level understanding of how to make disaster risk management sustainable, you are welcome to share your learning.

What will it be used for?

We would like you to help us collect case studies of CBDRM best practices to inform our analysis of what factors need to be in place for sustainable and scalable CBDRM. All case studies collected and subsequently selected, will be compiled into regional publications. These regional publications will then be used to produce a global level ‘how to do sustainable CBDRM’ guide that will be used as an advocacy tool at the national, regional and global levels.

What’s in it for you?

This is an opportunity to let the world know about your good work in CBDRM. You can disseminate the valuable learning you’ve gained over time about how to make CBDRM sustainable and replicable elsewhere. In addition, your case study may be included in a GNDR publication at the global and/or regional level. These publications will be shared with you so you can use it to help showcase your work with prospective donors and other stakeholders. Also, there will be regional workshops to help analyse the case studies, so by submitting your case study you may receive an invitation to the international workshop in your region.

How to participate
