This training manual captures the impacts and good practices of partner organizations’ work in building community resilience during the pilot project “Community-based Approaches to Flood Management in Thailand”. It documents the application of the Associated Programme on Flood Management's “Community-Based Flood Management” tool. This manual provides short guidance on how targeted communities have been involved in flood risk management and what participative tools and approaches have been implemented in the field. It also identifies what roles and responsibilities can heighten community empowerment and build their resilience.

In 2011, Thailand experienced severe flooding, causing the entire nation to suffer great losses across all sectors. To improve self-help capacities of communities living in riverine and flash flood prone areas, the community-based flood management pilot project was implemented in Prachinburi province, Thailand.
