Each community faces risks or threats that are specific to its own environment and context. To promote safety, health, and well-being, it often makes sense to identify the top risks and focus on those risks first.


  1. Asses risk at community level — The IFRC’s Road Map to Community Resilience and Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment tool (as well as related health and shelter tools) guide communities to conduct local risk assessments.
  2. Conduct a city-wide assessment — The GDPC has created a new guide on city-wide assessments for community resilience. The guide uses a participatory approach and emphasizes city-wide analysis and prioritization.
