This programme was novel in promoting a community-driven planning framework for disaster risk reduction towards the implementation of the Sendai Framework. By building on longstanding and traditional approaches to volunteerism and community involvement, the programme provided a platform for communities to lead the mapping, design and implementation of local disaster plans based on their priority needs and vulnerabilities. This comprehensive approach not only reduced disaster risk but also promoted livelihood diversification and improved access to basic social services.
