Indigenous communities are simultaneously vulnerable and resilient to environmental hazards. This vulnerability stems from their political and economic isolation. Their resilience comes from their intimate knowledge and relationships with their lands, waters and ecosystems.

Indigenous DRR is a fundamental strategy of Indigenous development, an expression of Indigenous Rights, and a collaborative interface with non-Indigenous society.
