Community resilience framework - Sri Lanka

The Community Resilience Framework proposes a risk sensitive development incorporating past lessons, current practices and looking at futuristic development gains in line with national and international strategies on building resilience. The goal of the resilience framework is to achieve resilience through understanding underlying risk factors. It intends to provide an insight into community based resilience for any interested party working on DRR. For policymakers it is a document that would assist in designing strategies to overcome obstacles imposed due to natural or man-made hazards.

The objective of this framework is to guide and facilitate local authority (Including Divisional Secretariat and local governments) officials and Disaster Management Center members to work towards resilience building at local to divisional level. This entails development planning committee’s to assess risks and accordingly plan disaster preparedness to reduce community vulnerability. 

This framework was a collaborative effort between the Disaster Management Center (DMC), Ministry of Disaster Management and its Comprehensive Disaster Management Programme and also the Disaster Risk Reduction Consortium under the DipECHO partners in Sri Lanka.
