Building Resilience in Community Disaster-risk Reduction Programs

21 July 2017

This installment of the Knowledge Sharing Webinar Series highlights the importance of multi-stakeholder collaboration and its structures, processes and practices in building resilience and adaptative capacity of urban communities in community disaster-risk reduction (DRR) and learning programs.  This webinar aimed to:

  • ​Provide insight into the principle of developing a structure that can enable collaborative processes to support citizen resilience/adaptive capacity building using DRR or education programs; and
  • Demonstrate how the selected cases on projects/initiatives highlight collaboration in relation to good practices for urban development resource sharing and to serve as references for similar implementation elsewhere.
