The Bangladesh Urban Resilience Project (BURP) Phase 2 will hold its fourth field investigation on August 16-22, 2014 in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The objective of the field investigation is to complete the data collection process and consultations to finalize the Project Appraisal Document (PAD) and Annexes 1, 2 and 3, which are expected to be completed by the end of August.
The mission members will conduct Strategic Orientation Meeting on BURP with high level officials of national agencies namely, Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief (MoDMR), Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA), Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development (MoLGRD), Ministry of Information and Communications Technology (MoICT), Ministry of Planning, Ministry of Health, Fire Service and Civil Defence (FSCD), Department of Disaster Management (DDM), Armed Forces Division (AFD), Police, Rajdhani Unnayan Katripakhaya (RAJUK), Dhaka City Corporations (DCCs) Executives, and Utilities Executives. The emphasis will be on the BURP Emergency Management System (EMS), i.e., Component A. This component explains the rationale for investment, its linkages to the current EM system and to international standards and its added value to Bangladesh.
The field mission members will also have a Tactical Orientation Workshop on EMS with DCCs. Target audience is composed of members of Disaster Management Committees, Disaster Management Response Groups, and Department Heads. Other core agencies (i.e. DDM, FSCD, RAJUK) are also invited. The objective is to operationalize Component A investment elements related to DCCs, assess capabilities, resources and develop most effective strategy for implementation of DCC’s related Component A3.
