Abstract: Flooding is regarded as a chronic disaster in many parts of Zimbabwe. The study sought to determine the role of community–based approaches of flood mitigation in Tsholotsho specifically flood prone zones. The study made use of questionnaires and interviews to gather data. The common findings in this regard are: local institutions (both formal and informal) play a critical role in sustaining the efforts; integration of community initiatives in the government policies and practices is important to up-scale the efforts, local change agents play crucial roles in grass-root implementation. The research provided a recommendation that there is need to recognize the role of community based flood disaster risk institutions and initiatives.
