CBDRM regional workshop in Bangkok

As a part of the ongoing 3-year ‘Institutionalising Sustainable CBDRM’ project, GNDR organised a regional workshop in Bangkok, Thailand, on April 26-27. Primarily led by Asian Disaster Preparedness Center, GNDR’s regional partner, the workshop was a joint effort between GNDR, ADPC, SEEDS-India and CDP-Philippines. Among the 34 participants, there were 19 women and 15 men.

In advance of the workshop, nearly 90 cases of successful CBDRM initiatives from the regions were collected. The cases were then evaluated against a framework that was developed in consultation with partners and through desk research. This evaluation process was used to rate the collected cases for various attributes. The cases were then ranked and the organisations that submitted the top 30 cases – meaning the cases that showcased elements of sustainability and institutionalization – were invited to this regional workshop. The participants spent two days together, holding rigorous debates, and finally populate a list of factors, that most of the organizations agreed as the top priority to ensure the sustainability of institutionalized CBDRM.
