What is its purpose?
The indicator provides a proxy measure of a community’s disaster preparedness at the institutional level. At the baseline stage it assists in identifying target areas for intervention. At the endline stage, it can show the impact of your organization's advocacy and technical assistance activities.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
This information can be collected through key informant interviews with the relevant stakeholders (local authorities, disaster management agencies) and a review of relevant documents. A disaster management plan should contain, at minimum, an assessment of likely hazards, an early warning system and communication methodology, and an outline of the planned response.
1) The size of the targeted authority depends on the project context; it could be village/municipality/region as relevant.
2) If the project has a focus on participatory budgeting or advocacy for funding, the indicator phrasing could be amended to “number of districts which have included disaster management in local development plans and budgets.”
