By engaging local authorities and community members, the process sought to develop robust action plans focusing on disaster risk reduction and enhancing the community’s ability to respond to potential hazards. This collaborative effort aimed to foster a more resilient and prepared community, capable of facing future challenges.

Throughout the assessment, participants identified specific risks and hazards unique to Tazhilin Village. By involving the community and local authorities in the process, the initiative emphasized the importance of creating tailored action plans. These plans include practices for disaster risk reduction, training and educational programs, continuous monitoring, and improving intervention effectiveness. Additionally, the project promoted collaboration among all stakeholders to ensure comprehensive disaster preparedness.

The e-VCA in Tazhilin Village saw enthusiastic participation from the community and local authorities. A total of 51 individuals took part in the assessment, comprising 28 women and 23 men.
