Disaster Vulnerability & Donor Opportunities in South and Southeast Asia

Disaster Vulnerability and Donor Opportunity in South and Southeast Asia outlines opportunities for donors of all kinds to support disaster preparedness and risk reduction programs in six of the world's most at-risk countries. It offers strategic advice for donors to make the most impact with each investment, and how to integrate resilience into current strategies. The paper comes as a part of the Give2Asia and International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR) NGO Disaster Preparedness Program, which aims to catalyze philanthropic investment in disaster preparedness and resilience in Asia. Over the course of this program, Give2Asia and IIRR will build upon these donor opportunities and strategic advice to improve the quality of disaster philanthropy in Asia.

Give2Asia and IIRR Conferences on Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction:





The International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR) is a community development and hands-on training organization with more than 50 years of experience. IIRR has implemented people-centered, sustainable development programs in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, and today, maintains a strong presence in East Africa and Southeast Asia. IIRR’s disaster risk reduction program framework, called Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction (CMDRR), builds the capacities of communities to reduce and manage their disaster risks. CMDRR enables communities to facilitate participatory disaster risk assessment, use these assessments for planning and preparedness, mobilize community members to be involved in risk reduction and facilitate learning. Click here to learn more.
