Embedding community-based flood risk management in investment: A part-to-whole approach
In this paper, case studies of pilot community-based practices in flood risk management in the People’s Republic of China and Indonesia are reviewed, and the lessons learned serve as practical guidelines.
These basic guiding principles form the backbone of the CBFRM process and are relevant in developing arrangements for investment projects: (i) community organization, (ii) financing, (iii) capacity development, (iv) gender and social inclusion, (v) risk management, (vi) technology transfer, and (vii) cultural norms and values.
Embedding community-based approaches, particularly in flood risk management investment programs, can help enhance community resiliency, increase ownership and participation by the beneficiaries, maximize the benefits of investment, and improve the sustainability of benefits.
