COMMUNITY RISK ASSESSMENT REPORTS

The South African Disaster Management Act and National Disaster Management Framework call for increased efforts to reduce risks developmentally. The framework explicitly states that “Disaster risk assessment efforts must actively include the participation of vulnerable communities and households” (RSA, 2005: 31).

A community risk assessment is a fundamental step for informing development measures grounded on local risk dynamics with a view to ensuring the sustainability of interventions and service delivery programmes. The key tenet of a community risk assessment is a concern to put local communities at the forefront of risk and vulnerability identification, conducting research through participatory enagaement with community memebers and local stakeholders in a bottom-up fashion, thereby allowing ownership and control of the continued risk assessment process by the local people themselves. In this way a CRA creates a framework for a reciprocal exchange of information and strategies between key service providers, development practitioners and local community members. 

Below are the various CRA reports that RADAR has conducted over almost a decade (including those conducted when it was known as the Disaster Mitigation for Sustainable livelihoods Programme - DiMP based at University of Cape Town until 2011/12), which are available to download.
