This document reports on the project 'Building Women’s Leadership and Fostering Collaborations toward Community Disaster Resilience' intended to equip women from resource-poor communities to shape community disaster resilience agendas and practices on the ground. The project was implemented in the most hazardous regions of India, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, over a three-year time frame.

The report captures the innovations, good practices and impact of the project that unfolded in India. Through detailed case studies and programmatic analysis, it documents the project insights, operational processes, challenges and the path moving forward towards mainstreaming community disaster resilience practices into long-term development planning for high-risk, disaster-prone regions.
