Rural disaster resilience project: the research arc
Ron BowlesCarol AmaratungaGreg AndersonRobin S CoxLaurie PearceDawn Ursuliak
The goal of the RDRP Project is to develop and pilot a participatory, community-centered process for engaging rural, remote and small coastal (RCC) communities in disaster risk reduction planning at the local level with a focus on enhancing local capacity and capability. The participatory approach to the research is designed to support the engagement of citizens in the pilot communities and to elicit and integrate their expertise and insights in the development of emergency planning project tools, curriculum, and process frameworks.
