Excerpt: The present paper is a non-academic and thus, hopefully, unpretentious, attempt at reviewing the literature on the the role of local institutions and their interaction in disaster risk mitigation (DRM). The motivation for immediately cautioning the reader from the outset about the less than revolutionary character of this review is twofold: first, it is based on the appreciation that, unfortunately, there exist relatively few documented local experiences which are, honestly speaking, innovative and ?worth writing home about? ? a lot of disaster management is still organised almost exclusively by the military and/or central government; second, a deliberate attempt is made to keep away from the ?dev-speak? jargon that has come to beset many recent laudible contributions to the development policy debate (such as the Sustainable Livelihoods framework), so that those (under pressure to keep) looking for new frameworks and methodologies will remain largely disappointed. On the other hand, what will be found on the following pages is a non-exhaustive compendium of strengths and limitations of local institutions involved in DRM and some suggestions for tapping the former and tackling the latter.
