A disaster resilient future: mobilising communities and institutions for effective disaster risk reduction - Baseline study for the sixth DIPECHO action plan
This study intends to identify the baseline reference points to depict the existing scenario of the community people in light of all the indicators set forth in the sixth DIPECHO Action Plan for South Asia in Bangladesh undertaken by NARRI Consortium. It clusters three zones based on prominent hazards and highlights significant differences in the knowledge and practice of preparedness and mitigation measures, awareness and responses to warning signals in cyclone, flood-prone and earthquake prone areas. The study presents a set of recommendations in order to strengthen the programme and project activities, reach the project goals and above all fully accomplish the overall programme goal of enhancing the resilience of communities vulnerable to natural hazards in Bangladesh. National Alliance for Risk Reduction and Response Initiatives (NARRI) is a consortium of six INGOs working on Disaster Risk Reduction in Bangladesh.
