Document extract

The Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction: Experiences from the horn of Africa
is a book that captures lessons in three horn of Africa countries of Ethiopia, Kenya
and Uganda. As a global leader of innovative development approaches, IIRR in
collaboration with Cordaid developed CMDRR as a practical and community centred
approach to deal with threat of disasters. As incidences of disasters and number of
people affected continue to rise, the poor especially in the global south have been
disproportionately affected. Many decades of disaster relief has failed to address
the underlying causes of vulnerability leading to perpetual aid dependency. There
has been a fundamental misplaced assumption that vulnerable communities are
helpless victims with very little if any to contribute towards disaster risk reduction and
management. Programmes based on this assumption have empirically undermined and
eroded indigenous coping mechanisms.
