Equipping participants with skills and linkages to cope and survive natural and man-made disasters

The program has built the capacity of PEP participants to apply appropriate strategies in the reduction of negative impacts from, and response to, disasters in accordance with individual, household, and community contingency plans, early warning information usage, and pre-developed emergency response mechanisms. Besides this, the program also selected and trained community Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) leader on the facilitation of the contingency plan at the community level.. 

The program provided capacity building training to Upazila Disaster Management Committee (UzDMC), Union Disaster Management Committee (UDMC) on disasters preparedness, rescue, and response, and Union Disaster Volunteer (UDVs) on early warning collection and dissemination, engage in rescue at the local level and help UDMCs in response activities.

The program closely works with its technical partner Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System (RIMES) to enhance community resilience by reducing risks from extreme natural events and going beyond “what the weather will be” to “what the farmers will do.” RIMES has developed 15-days streamflow forecasting system that has been automated and the system has been integrated into Flood Forecasting and Warning Center (FFWC)’s operational forecasting system.
