ROOTS 9: Reducing risk of disaster in our communities (Portuguese)
This book describes a methodology called Participatory Assessment of Disaster Risk. PADR enables communities to assess the factors that contribute to the size and scale of any potential disaster and to develop locally owned plans to address those risks. It is a community-empowering process, helping people to understand cause-effect relationships and to realise their own capacities to reduce their vulnerability to hazards. Click here to download it.
