CBi Network Foundation Guide
The Network Foundation Guide and associated resources are designed to help businesses and other actors think through the key building blocks needed to create successful private sector networks for disaster risk reduction, emergency preparedness, response and recovery (which together constitute disaster risk management or DRM).
They provide guidance and tools to help networks better understand their context, identify key areas of need, and develop strong initial working relationships that will be the basis of their DRM activities. The guide can be used to evaluate whether a given country is suited to the creation of a private sector DRM network. It can also be used by existing networks to ensure their programming is aligned with the local context and stakeholders on an ongoing basis.
This guide has been developed as part of a suite of tools offered by CBi to existing and prospective Member Networks to assist them in their journey. Another tool is an online Network Assessment to help networks self-assess their performance and identify highest-priority resources.
