Abstract: This study was conducted to identify how Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction (CMDRR) project implemented by NGO contributed on Building Drought Resilient Community. The study was done in Rayitu Woreda of Bale Zone, Oromia Region. Single Case (embedded) Unit Design was used whereby the study case was the CMDRR project in drought prone community context having the implementing organization, local stakeholders and project beneficiary community as the embedded unit of analysis. Theoretical proposition strategy with pattern matching and rival explanation analysis techniques were employed for data analysis and interpretation. The studied community has gone through five different stages of the task achievement dimensions of the CMDRR process starting from PDRA till PMEL. Before going through these five main steps community organization, CMDRR Committee, responsible to lead the CMDRR process was established in each of the three studied Kebeles. With the leadership of this CMDRR committee drought risk reduction measures were planned and implemented with the financial support of the project. Among others, Improved DRR capacity of the community through construction of water resources, rehabilitation of grazing land, behavioral change towards efficient utilization of available natural resources (water, rangeland and livestock) and engagement on adaptive measures including cultivation of cash crops were the main output of the CMDRR project. The CMDRR project implemented by DCA has contributed immensely in revitalizing the community’s existing capacity.
