Early Recovery & Resilience

Community resilience is a measure of the sustained ability of a community to utilize available resources to respond to, withstand, and recover from any adverse situations. People vary dramatically in the coping skills they use when confronting a crisis. Sensing the extreme threat and adverse effects of disasters and natural catastrophes on both the economy as well as on the community health, the national and international actors have developed and implemented various programs on the theme of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) to ensure resilient community infrastructure, greater sustainability in investments as well as more resilient communities. These efforts are also in line with United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal ‘Climate Action’.

APWDO’s presence at community level puts it in a unique position to rapidly respond to early recovery needs during any emergency situation. Understanding the local context, community vulnerability, experience and expertise in linking early recovery with community resilience is a priority area for APWDO. APWDO understands these key characteristics at community’s level, and working at grass root level to develop and strengthened these skills, which can improve the abilities of the communities to deal with life’s setbacks.

APWDO has completed a number of donor funded projects besides its independent initiatives on risk reduction and increasing communities’ resilience towards any disaster that may loom over their heads.

Following are some of the projects implemented by APWDO on this theme:
