Webinar #10: 21 July 2017

This webinar presents the principles of social collaboration in Community DRR and adaptive capacities.



Multi-stakeholder collaboration and its structures, processes and practices are essential for building resilience/adaptive capacity of urban communities through resource sharing in community disaster-risk reduction (DRR) and learning programs.

The objectives of this webinar are:

  1. To provide insight into the principles of developing a structure that can enable collaborative processes to support citizen and/or community resilience/adaptive capacity building using DRR or education programs; and
  2. To demonstrate how the case studies on 3 projects/initiatives highlight collaboration in relation to good practices for urban development resource sharing and to serve as references for similar implementation elsewhere.
