Purpose:

Therefore, disaster risk reduction (DRR) has to be seen as an integral part of the development efforts. Geographical location and land characteristics make Bangladesh, where this tool was developed one of the most disaster prone countries in the world. The country is exposed to a variety of recurrent natural hazards, including floods, cyclones, droughts and riverbank erosion, which pull down development initiatives and progresses.

 

Objectives:

To save life & assets making emergency preparedness plan & building emergency response team in order to mitigate hazard of disaster.

 

Target Beneficiary:  Our direct beneficiaries are the distressed and wretched people who are ill-fated and victim to emergency crisis. We used to made a half yearly census in every year, through this process we notice that we have covered up 59.9 k distressed people who fell victim to emergency crisis in every year through cyclone, tornado, flood or other natural calamities in may parts of Bangladesh and they’re our direct beneficiary. On the other hand, 2.99 lacs distressed people are our indirect beneficiary in every year.
