Abstract

Communities are the smallest unit of government administration and the foundation for disaster prevention and reduction and risk governance. Community integrated risk governance lies at the core of improving regional and national integrated risk governance abilities. It is also an important part in improving “top down” and “bottom up” integrated risk governance modes.
