Community Based Disaster Management (CBDM)
Before, during and after disasters, IDEP works together with local communities to help increase resilience to disasters. In times of disaster IDEP works with a nationwide network of local partners to get people the assistance they need as quickly as possible. As with all of IDEP’s programs, the aim of our Disaster Management work is to, “help people help themselves”. We achieve this through community capacity building, demonstrations, and practical hands-on education.
IDEP’s mission for its Community Based Disaster Management (CBDM) program is to build local communities’ resilience to disasters in a sustainable manner. IDEP will:
– Reach disaster areas in 3 x 24 hours
– Provide relief supports through preparedness media
– Use permaculture approach in recovery and rehabilitation process
– Network with partners on the field
