“Relevant decision makers need to be aware of inclusive disaster risk management.”
A manual on inclusive community-based disaster risk management was created to complement the national project of 'Awareness Raising and Community-Based Disaster Risk Reduction (CBDRM)'. A pilot project was launched in 47 villages in 6 communes of 3 district of Quang Nam province.
Vietnam is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the Mekong region. People with disabilities are one of most the vulnerable groups of the population for many reasons including the consequences of war (e.g. injuries and agent orange).
