Saly, Senegal


Organised and hosted by ENDA Energie, this workshop took place in Saly, Senegal, bringing together representatives from organisations that submitted top-scoring case studies on sustainable CBDRM in Africa. The purpose of this workshop was to identify the factors that contribute to sustainable and institutionalised CBDRM and had 3 main objectives:

  1. Identify key success factors of sustainable CBDRM
  2. Identify ways in which sustainable CBDRM can be scaled out and institutionalised
  3. Share knowledge and experiences in CBDRM

This regional workshop was considered as a platform for the exchange of experience on disaster risk management and peer learning. It also shed light on many issues related to the sustainability of initiatives, especially after project funding, their integration into local and/or national development strategies, ownership and scaling-up. It highlighted that the the need to strengthen networking among members remains a constant demand, as well as a better involvement of youth, women and communities in the implementation of disaster risk reduction actions.

The factors identified as contributing to sustainable and institutionalised CBDRM fed into the development of a global cookbook on how to institutionalise sustainable CBDRM.
