This cookbook outlines the roles for Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in building coherence by identifying national and subnational examples of successful agenda-coherence. This cookbook is based on fieldwork in two countries, the Philippines and Mexico, and draws on over seventy case studies from Asia, Africa and Latin America. The 'recipes' presented in the document are adapted from case studies from a wide range of localities around the world which illustrate coherence in action. These case studies reveal a number of success factors – presented here as ingredients – employed by CSOs to enhance coherence when working on resilience at the local level.
The GIDRM project aims to strengthen the German contribution to improve disaster risk management worldwide and to support the implementation of the Sendai Framework for DRR (SFDRR). GIDRM supports selected international and national, governmental and non-governmental actors in their ambition to achieve coherence between the SFDRR and the Paris Climate Agreement, as well as the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and the New Urban Agenda, with regards to planning, implementing and reporting on disaster risk management.
Find here some of the key recipes highlighted in the case studies:
- making use of local wisdom and external knowledge
- focus on ‘bouncing forward’
- using social demand and political influence
This is GNDR's second cookbook, following the ‘Cookbook on Institutionalising Sustainable Community-Based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM)’, and is packed with key ingredients and recipes for coherent action in disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation and sustainable development.
