Abstract : The development of a set of tools to enhance appreciation of local practices developed by communities regarding settlements and risks is an initiative that aims to promote context-based strategies for responding efficiently and adequately to habitat improvement and vulnerability reduction needs. This guide offers a methodological and operational support for decision-making and practices towards approaches and actions deeply rooted in local contexts. It is a practical tool that provides detailed explanation on planning, preparing and undertaking field assessments of local practices related to habitat and risks. It refers to a participatory approach suitable for, and adapted to, various geographical, cultural and risk-prone areas. By supporting habitat assessment in all its different aspects, it also fosters links between programmes, providing clues and keys to define and implement coherent projects including income generating activities, livelihood, health and other related sectors. The necessary investment to be taken into account in project planning to achieve the basic step described in this booklet will result in huge savings, as logistical issues will be drastically reduced during the project implementation. It is a worthwhile investment that will lead to decisions ensuring more benefits to the affected communities, including a long-term enhancement of their resilience capacity
