DIPECHO funded Inclusive Community Resilience for Sustainable Disaster Risk Management (INCRISD) is implemented by Handicap International, Oxfam and ActionAid in South Asia.

The project aims make disaster initiatives inclusive because Women, persons with disabilities and socially excluded groups are, together with other marginalized groups, at higher risk with regards to natural hazards. No harmonized, regionally-based, locally appropriate inclusive DRM model exists in South Asia nor is recognized by relevant region-wide DRM actors. Community based disaster risk reduction can becomes inclusive if vulnerable and excluded groups and minorities get involved during the conceptualization, design, and implementation and lead the process along with local stakeholders. An inclusive planning and budgeting can ensure equitable resource allocation.

General objective:

To build safer, more resilient communities in South Asia, by promoting an inclusive CBDRM model with a replication and scaling-up perspective through longer term national and international DRR instruments

Specific objective:

An inclusive DRM model used by key stakeholders, enhanced regional partnerships and achieved cross fertilization increases the coping capacities of the most vulnerable segments of the population in South Asia to face and manage adverse conditions, emergencies or disasters

Expected result 1: A model on inclusive DRM is designed and validated through good practice collection and pilot-testing within target in-country DIPECHO projects and involvement of key DRM actors in South Asian countries

Expected result 2:Communities, local, national and regional institutions, international organisations and institutional donors are willing to adopt and use the evidence-based inclusive DRM model

Expected result 3: The capacities of stakeholders from community to international level on inclusive DRR/M are strengthened to contribute to the development, promotion, integration and replication of the inclusive model
