Case Study: Building Urban Resilience in Southeast Asia – Innovative participatory mapping methodology for disaster preparedness and response

Hazard risk mapping is a tool generally used to identify risks, vulnerabilities and local Disaster Risk Management capacities. Under this initiative, hazard risk mapping provided the necessary basis for developing Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) plans at the different administrative levels of commune (or ward in cities), district and province.

An innovative and participatory mapping methodology was developed and piloted in three countries (Cambodia, the Philippines and Viet Nam) to enable local government and communities to improve their preparedness and response plans. Multi-hazard maps were developed using Quantum Geographical Information System in 19 urban areas and tested through simulation exercises.
