The role of social capital in disaster resilience: a research report on the influence of social capital on disaster resilience in the Ayerwaddy Delta, Myanmar

Source(s):  Y Care International (YCI)

This report aims to get better understanding of the influence of social capital on disaster resilience in remote rural communities in an area of Myanmar particularly exposed to natural hazards; the Ayerwaddy Region. This analysis has been carried out by assessing the strength of civil society and linkages of and between remote rural communities, and looks at the extent to which these villages rely on each other to reduce their own vulnerability to disaster risks. The recommendations drawn in the report will help to ensure community-based DRR projects and activities empowering young people and their communities to reduce the risk of future disasters.
