Investing in studies of cross-cutting issues or particular topics that are beyond the scope of an individual project can be insightful and rewarding: as the lessons from such studies usually apply to a broad range of projects and programmes, and can thus have a much greater audience and effect.

At Banyaneer, we are passionate about research. With our combined practical expertise and academic backgrounds, we are well suited to find the answers to the questions you may have. Filling knowledge gaps and thereby helping to improve chances to sustainably reinforce resilience is part of our mission.

We have conducted several such studies – for instance, about the role of social capital in reinforcing resilience. We have also carried out several cost-benefit analyses (CBA) of disaster risk management – in Vietnam, Bangladesh, Tajikistan, and most recently in Georgia.   

Of course, funding for such studies is often harder to come by than for baseline or regular evaluations – at times, it makes sense for different players to combine resources, as was done by several actors in Laos. Are you aware of a knowledge gap or see a particular aspect of resilience that should be investigated further? Write to info@banyaneer.com and share your ideas with us. Through our network, we might be able to connect you with other players, and help to get your idea off the ground.

Some of the research papers we have prepared thus far…

IFRC – Georgia (2016) 

A cost-benefit analysis (CBA) that goes beyond the benefits of mitigation (reduced hazard losses), showing that disaster risk management also brings social, economic and organisational co-benefits.  View

Enable, engage, extend: on the basis of good practice cases, the report recommends key principles for full integration of persons with disabilities in disaster risk management. View

Research gender reportOxfam, Care, French Red Cross, HPA – Laos (2013)

This study looks at six disaster risk reduction projects and concludes that capacity-building approaches should be fine-tuned on a case-by-case basis, and include generally more coaching.

Research social capital and community resilienceIFRC – Nepal, Myanmar, China (2012)

Looking at nine urban and rural communities and relevant literature, the study illustrates how social capital (e.g. networks, collective action) can be built upon when reinforcing resilience. View

This consultancy led to two products – a report on gender-sensitive disaster risk reduction, and a handbook for community facilitators. While focused on the Pacific, many tools are applicable elsewhere. View report   View handbook
