Community-Based Disaster Risk Reduciton (CBDRR) is a process in which at-risk communities are actively engaged in the identification, analysis, planning, monitoring and evaluation of disaster risks in order to reduce their vulnerabilities and enhance their capacities. People are at the heart of decision-making and implementation of disaster risk reduction activities. With key emphasis on capacity building and community participation, the programme includes disaster preparedness and response training at community and institutional levels, as well as mitigation activities to limit the effects of drought and flood on food security. In June 1999 the Oxfam International alliance made up of eight Oxfam affiliates implemented a Disaster Risk Reduction programme in Cambodia. The purpose was to develop the organisation's emergency preparedness and response as well as support local stakeholders in responding to emergencies and natural disasters at the national level. Under the 1999 Disaster Risk Reduction programme, Oxfam in 2003 initiated its first Community-Based Disaster Risk Reduction (CBDRR) Project in Takéo forming a systematic framework in coping with adversity. The report includes a gender assessment of the impact of CBDRR on women in the Takéo area. The programme has also established effective working relations with a number of different organizations including government bodies, local and international NGOs.
