Invest in capacity building at local levels, coupled with more dependable, multi-year DRM funding streams local governments can use to invest in on-going actions

Effective DRM requires action at all scales, from national down to local. Effective integration of DRM into existing institutional structures will require actions focused on locallevel capacity building. At the moment, only 2% of reconstruction funds are allocated for capacity building, which does not reflect the need. In parallel, there needs to be commitment from national and regional-level funding streams to support multi-year efforts. Funds need to be delivered directly to the government doing the work. Expenditure should continue to be reported via existing platforms for fiscal tracking and transparency to prevent corruption. Local advocacy and education campaigns are needed to develop understanding, support and lobbying for action by citizens
