financial assistance to the “Flood 2004” victims (small entrepreneurs) for enhancing their economic capability by rehabilitating their business assets
Implementation and follow-up activities undertaken under the State Commitments at Hyogo, Japan
Commitment I: Prepare and publish national baseline assessments of the status of disaster risk reduction
Conducted a number of consultation meetings and workshops with all the disaster management stakeholders
Undertaking initiatives for conducting a study to provide a thorough inventory of all ongoing or recently terminated risk reduction and community preparedness initiatives of major players active in the field of disaster management and risk reduction in Bangladesh.
Commitment 2: Designate an appropriate national coordination mechanism for the implementation and follow up of this Framework for Action, and communicate the information to the secretariat of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction;
A National Platform Coordination Committee has been formed with the representation from govt., NGOs, civil society organizations, UN agencies and donors
Policy, Programme and Partnership Development Unit (PPPDU) of the CDMP under the MoFDM is assigned to communicate the information
Commitment 3: Publish and periodically update a summary of national programmes for disaster risk reduction related to this Framework for Action, including on international cooperation;
The inventory will provide the baseline information which will be updated on an annual basis
Commitment 4: Develop procedures for reviewing national progress against this Framework for Action, which should include systems for cost benefit analysis and ongoing monitoring and assessment of vulnerability and risk, in particular with regards to regions exposed to hydrometeorological and seismic hazards, as appropriate;
Methodology for this task is yet to develop
Commitment 5: Include information on progress of disaster risk reduction in the reporting mechanisms of existing international and other frameworks concerning sustainable development, as appropriate;
All the international and national drivers have been consulted during preparation of MoFDM Corporate Plan and Strategic and Operational Plans of the ministry and its agencies. All our future relevant national report would focus on the progress in disaster reduction in the country
Commitment 6: Consider, as appropriate, acceding to, approving or ratifying relevant international legal instruments relating to disaster reduction, and, for State parties to those instruments, take measures for their effective implementation;
We are party to almost all legal instruments relating to disaster reduction
Commitment 7: Promote the integration of risk reduction associated with existing climate variability and future climate change into strategies for the reduction of disaster risk and adaptation to climate change. Ensure that the management of risks associated with geological hazards, such as earthquakes and landslides, are fully taken into account in disaster risk reduction programmes.
MoFDM fallows a all hazard risk reduction model which has two distinct but inter-related parts:
Community risk assessment (CRA) is a standard tool to define the risk environment which combines both the formal and traditional hazard analysis to ensure the PPRR (prevention, preparedness, response and recovery) balance right for moving from generic to specific risk programmes. The model ensures a methodical approach to risk reduction by ensuring that both formal and traditional risk assessment is utilized to guide the design of the disaster management programmes.
