There is no translation available.

With the support from Islamic Relief USA Islamic Relief, Bangladesh has initiated new project at Khulna and Satkhira (the most vulnerable districts to natural disaster among others). The title of the project is "Enhanching Resilience of climate affected communities in the South-Western Bangladehs".

This project will be implemented over a period of two years. It will contribute to improve the quality of life, reduction in poverty and inequality through building community resilience to natural disasters which will ultimately reduce loss and increase human productivitiy. This will be achieved through increased capacity of communities in the face of disaster and community risk in the South-Western region of Bangladesh. The project activities will directly contribute in reducing the risks of hazards in the region through advocating for a sustainable solution of the root-causes of disasters.

The project will target local communities as well as institutions as target beneficiaries. The proposed intervention has targeted woemn, children, PWDs and the elderly and will ensure the inclusion of these socially excluded groups and their mainstreaming throughout disaster planning and management. At the national level, two Government Ministries will be targeted under the proposed intervention; namely Ministries of Environment and Ministry of Disaster and Relief. Target institutions at the local level include school, CBOs and local level governance structures such as the Union Parishad, Upazila Parishad, DMCs and SMCs.

The project will focus providing improved shelters, livelihoods, infrastructures and the institutional strengthening for disaster risk reduction. Their organizatinal capacity, networks for advocacy and local early warning system will be also supported. Community mobilization will be undertaken for structural mitigation at community level to make the DRR a culture.
