Report: Donor Perspectives & Readiness for Disaster Preparedness Funding


Since January 2014, Give2Asia has partnered with community-based organizations (CBOs) in South and Southeast Asia to understand best practices and learnings for locally-led disaster preparedness and community resilience. This work has helped Give2Asia to identify specific CBO partners as part of an extensive effort to make Disaster Preparedness a larger part of the portfolio of international philanthropists and corporate foundations.

Donor Perspectives & Readiness For Disaster Preparedness Funding: Opportunities & Challenges for Philanthropy in Building Community Resilience attempts to describe the work and identify key finding from Give2Asia’s Disaster Preparedness efforts between 2014 and mid-2017. It also provides information on locally led development and challenges in bringing international partners to support the disaster preparedness work generally, and with CBOs in particular. This document is the third and final document in a disaster relief and recovery series made by Give2Asia in partnership with the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR) to support local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) building community resilience.
