Community-Based Earthquake Preparedness in Nepal: A Matter of Risk Perceptions
PDF File Size: 344 KB | Download   
During the last three decades, there has been a paradigm shift in the way of dealing with disasters caused by natural hazards. It is now broadly acknowledged that relief and response are not enough, but mitigation, preparedness, and prevention have to be part of developing countries’ development strategies if they are to withstand a natural hazard. It is also recognized that the local community has to play a key part if disaster risk reduction (DRR) is to be sustainable (IISD 2007:1; Yodmani 2001:1, 2; Coppola 2011:13; UN/ISDR 2007:7). With the adoption of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) in 2005, community-based disaster risk reduction is now at the top of the international political agenda (Coppola 2011).
Community-based DRR takes place within different institutional settings, e.g., international strategies, the countries’ political settings, the donors’ strategy, or different actors’ social actions. DRR is not effective if it takes place in a vacuum; therefore, it is necessary to involve all actors in a joint effort (Kusumasari et al. 2010:448). If institutions’ agendas are very different, the risk is that the institutions—which should be promoting an advantageous environment for DRR—limit each other’s actions and thereby the final prevention.
