Abstract: ‘Accelerating Change: Engaging Local Communities in Disaster Risk Reduction in the Indian Himalayan Region’ is a project which brings research evidence from the ‘Pathways to Resilience’ project (Kullu District, Himachal Pradesh, India) into dialogue with current disaster risk reduction policy-practice debates, to provide forward recommendations. This science policy briefing paper details the problem of increasing disaster risk in mountain regions alongside a gap in local community engagement. The briefing calls for a shift in emphasis, which fosters inclusive community engagement, and takes better account of local knowledge in disaster risk reduction. Specific recommendations are: (i) revision of State and District disaster management plans; (ii) implementation of comprehensive awareness campaigns; and (iii) programmes to capture the diversity of local knowledge
