Community-Based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM)

Risk Management Plans Launched

The management plans, developed with the technical assistance of IOM and government authorities in Hela, received inputs from women, girls, men and boys in the beneficiary communities.

Community members worked together in identifying critical measures such as evacuation centres and safe drinking water points to mitigate disaster risks and improve resilience.

IOM is supporting the implementation of the CBDRM plans across the target communities in Hela and installed rain-fed catchments promoting resilience to water scarcity.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in partnership with the NDC, and the technical support of the PNG Red Cross Society (PNGRCS) delivered the national Training of Trainer (ToT) on Community-Based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM) and Build Back Safer (BBS) in Shelter Construction.  

The training is funded by USAID's Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (USAID-BHA) and delivered in Port Moresby from 06-10 September 2021.
