2. Disaster Management Household Awareness Program
Bangladesh experiences a monsoon season and natural disasters such as floods, tropical cyclones, tornadoes and rough seas, which occur on an almost annual frequency. The worst affected areas are those in the central southern region of the country. After facing a disaster, residents are faced with various health impacts, disruption of sanitation and drainage systems, disruption of water supply, climate refugees from coastal areas and siltation of the natural canals in the city. ICDR aimed to equip these affected households in Barisal with the necessary knowledge and training to overcome such issues through this program. Trainers were trained who used tools such as flipcharts to familiarize the victims with the problems and how to tackle them.
