Fostering precedent-setting innovations for institutional change.

Community-led partnerships demonstrate innovative ways in which actors can engage and create synergies advancing disaster and climate resilience. Each of the case studies presented here illustrates ways in which grassroots-government engagement has resulted in the effective delivery or use of government programs or services, reducing the everyday stresses that are heightened by disaster events.The community-led partnerships come from a diversity of contexts and represent different capacities, scale, and stages in their evolution. In particular, these partnerships demonstrate how local level development and disaster management policies can be effectively implemented.
