The following success factors are a list of actions to be taken by a variety of actors, from project implementers to local authorities and national government, to ensure community-based disaster risk management (CBDRM) is institutionalised.
As some of these elements cannot be achieved within the time frame of a single project, a government’s involvement is essential. Actions that can be achieved in a shorter time frame should be included within CBDRM projects.
The success factors in this section are grouped under six main categories representing characteristics of institutionalisation. Certain ingredients could be listed under more than one category, but they are placed under the one they are mostly linked to.
