Community Mapping to implement the Whole Community Concept

In addition to mapping of risk and protective factors, this process makes the whole community more resilient by:

 

a) Bringing the community together to collectively plan, which increases the sense of ownership and responsibility on the disaster response and recovery activities

b) Addressing issues that have been ignored for a long time

c) Giving voice to the marginalized groups including those with access and functional needs

d) Increasing awareness all the members of the community including elderly and children regarding disaster preparedness, response and recovery
