Lots has happened across the CBDRM project the last couple of months, with leadership forums, learning exchanges and roll out of the GNDR global Cookbook on Institutionalising Sustainable CBDRM. Here is a quick update.

It is necessary to move from managing disaster to managing disaster risk. Prevention of disaster must be the priority now and going forward. This was one of the main messages coming out of the European Forum on Disaster Risk Reduction 2018, that was celebrated by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction on 21-23 November in Rome, Italy.

Remoteness, lack of cellular network, no local doctor and no education after 6th grade - these factors are no hindrance for CBDRM to be effective in a local community, Samuel Peter from Habitat for Humanity India reports. He recently visited the small Philippenean community of San Ildefonso as a part of a CBDRM exchange program between India and the Philippines.
