Inspiring story from India about PfR's work supporting local communities to develop disaster risk reduction action plans and successfully accessing government funds to support some of the activities.

Document extract

Booktha is a village in Bihar state in India, and one of the villages where PfR India is active. During the first phase of PfR villagers conducted a hazard, vulnerability and capacity mapping, based on which a risk analysis was done. The risk analysis provided the basis for the Disaster Risk Reduction Action Plan, consisting of a contingency plan for better flood preparedness, and a village development plan aiming at reducing the disaster risk. The communities themselves now monitor, update and implement these DRR action plans.
