Capacity Building Framework for Disaster m Risk Reduction
Disaster does not necessarily occur due to the natural hazards. It is the interaction with the built environment which causes disaster. Poorly located and poorly constructed development is one of the main factors for the disaster. It is the ability of the built environment to withstand the impact of hazards that determines causalities and monetary cost of disasters. It is important to reduce the vulnerabilities within environment built.
It is indicated that the hazards cannot be managed and it is the characteristics of the built environment that can be managed. Therefore, it is essential to improve the capacities of the built environment in order to make it less vulnerable to the impacts of disasters. In particular, capacity enhancement within different sectors in the society such as governments, non--‐state and private institutions and communities, in relation to the built environment enables to identify constraints and to plan and manage construction activities of the built environment effectively, efficiently and sustainably. This paper provides frame work for the capacity building for disaster mitigation and reconstruction. The framework identifies four stages of capacity building. Capacity enhancement; namely, analysis, development, utilization and retention
