Implementation of Community DRM Plans
INDICATOR PHRASING: % of targeted communities which completed the action points included in their community disaster risk management plan
What is its purpose?
The indicator measures the proportion of the targeted communities who completed the action points set in their disaster risk management (DRM) plans. It shows the extent to which disaster risk management plans are actually implemented.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
Determine the indicator's value by using the following methodology:
1) Decide which / how many action points set in the target communities’ disaster risk management (DRM) plans have to be implemented so that it can be concluded that the community “completed the action points” (i.e. setting the benchmark).
2) In each community, use interviews with relevant key informants, focus group discussions with the local community members, and a review of documents to assess the types / number of action points that were completed.
3) For each community, decide whether it can be concluded that it completed the action points included in their community DRM plan.
4) To calculate the indicator’s value, divide the number of communities that completed their action points by the total number of surveyed communities. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
To be added later
Ensure that the action points include primarily those actions that (can) make a difference in the target communities (for example, avoid including action points such as "writing meeting minutes").
