Documents Produced Under Grant/Loans/TA | October 2017

This project sought to demonstrate the leadership of community-based women’s groups in integrating community disaster resilience priorities into local development programs in collaboration with the local government. It also aimed to position community-based women’s groups as knowledgeable actors through networking and peer learning processes that rapidly transferred practical knowledge. The project is part of a larger initiative implemented in the Philippines and Indonesia funded by ADB and facilitated by the Huairou Commission (HC), an INGO that works to empower grassroots women’s organizations. In the Philippines, the project was implemented by Damayang Maralitang Pilipinong Api, Inc. (DAMPA).
