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.

Due to its geographical location Cambodia is one of the most disaster-prone countries in Southeast Asia. Natural disasters such as oods along the Mekong River basin caused by monsoon and paddy elds damage by drought have always had a role in shaping the livelihood of millions in the country. In 1997 the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid Ofce Programme for Disaster Prevention, Mitigation and Preparedness (DIPECHO) published a diagnostic for Cambodia recommending that the promotion of community- based approaches to risk reduction as an effective solution to managing disasters.Rural communities in Cambodia have been coping with disasters in their own ways for centuries and strengthening those traditional coping mechanisms is an efcient and effective way of mitigating risks and improving disaster preparedness.Oxfam, an international NGO with a mission to serve families in the poorest communities, is both a relief and development agency. Oxfam is committed to addressing the underlying causes and effects of poverty and vulner-ability and, therefore within its emergency mandate, is committed to disaster preparedness and mitigation.
