The booklet has been prepared by Plan International Asia Pacific Hub with the financial support of Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies. The aim of this booklet is to show how the ICDRM Project succeeded in supporting communities in the Asia Region to become more inclusive, especially in disaster risk management. It aims to provide examples of how to create an inclusive environment.
This chapter documents the interventions made by Plan International Bangladesh and Plan International Philippines in supporting community disaster preparedness under the ICDRM Project. Both organizations have provided various information, education, and communication (IEC) materials to raise the communities’ disaster awareness and preparedness, especially in battling COVID-19.
