Community Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment in the Context of Disaster Risk Reduction

This assessment of vulnerability level and capacity at the sites mentored by WIIP was designed to ascertain the characteristics and frequency of hazards faced by the local community, as well as the capacity possessed by the community, and the sites vulnerable to disaster impact. The authors are aware that this report is far from perfect. Field constraints were a limiting factor in the acquisition of data and information.Nevertheless, the authors hope that all the information contained in this report will be of use to the community, local village and district/municipal governments, as well as to other parties who have an interest in reducing the disaster risk at those sites, and that in future it will be a consideration in sustainable ecosystem management, and in deciding on mitigation steps for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR).
