Abstract: It is evident there is an unmet need for immediate and locally activated community response to disasters that foster community ownership, leadership, participation and control. To bridge this gap, Concern Worldwide piloted an initiative to establish community managed structures that raise cash funds in the pre-disaster period, and use these funds to provide immediate assistance to disaster affected people. This innovative approach involves working with existing community and local government structures to form a community response committee that mobilizes financial resources through community and local contributions. The pilot provides bottom-up, humanitarian response by empowering affected communities to lead needs based, effective and rapid response through an independent, community-led and community financed local disaster response system.
