This paper looks at key lessons from more than a decade of Concern's Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) programmes.
This short document presents key lessons from more than a decade of Concern’s DRR programmes. It is a summary of lessons learned from documenting Concern’s approach to DRR in five contexts: mountains, rivers, coasts, drylands and urban areas. It identifies lessons pertinent to risk analysis, mitigation, preparedness and advocacy, and how DRR underpins building community resilience.
The publication is part of a series documenting Concern’s approach to disaster risk reduction. The series consists of five context papers focusing on DRR approaches in mountainous, dryland, coastal, urban, and riverine contexts. A sixth paper, 'Disaster Risk Reduction for Community Resilience', synthesizes conclusions from these context papers and identifies how Concern uses DRR build community resilience. Key lessons are highlighted in this learning brief ‘What we have learned’. The series is the output of a two-year project documenting Concern's approach to DRR and involving empirical research across 10 countries.
