Thanks Dilini/Joe for your comments. South Asia is very rich in PRD experiences. Fore.g Change Agent Programme in Sri Lanka, Bhoomi Sena Movement in India, Comilla PROSHIKA in Bangladesh are a few examples. I am not sure whether we learned much from these programmes. What is important is to create environment conducive for community led processes (rights based approaches to development). I made a presentation on Community Led Rights Based Disaster Management at an international seminar held in Colombo in 2008 which I am prepared to share with anybody interested in the subject.
