Building Model for Disaster Preparedness Project

    Following up the 2006 community based disaster preparedness project, where the assessment tool for earthquake and tsunami preparedness has been received with great positive interest by all relevant stakeholders at a local, regional and national level.

    Looking at the national and regional vulnerability, it is essential to modify the current assessment tool into a multi-hazard and user-friendly tool to accommodate the broad needs of the region. Looking at the above challenges, and with the support of UN-ISDR, this project aims at (1) developing and promoting the assessment module to measure community preparedness for a multiple range of hazards and (2) Develop a “model community” for disaster preparedness at national and regional level.
