Background and Introducing DEEPER:

Project Name Dhaka Earthquake and Emergency Preparedness - Enhancing Resilience (DEEPER)
Project Location Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC)
Project duration 01/06/2019 – 31/13/2021

Implementing agency and partners Christian Aid Bangladesh (CA), Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (BDRCS), German Red Cross (GRC), Action Contre La Faim (ACF), British Red Cross (BRC) and International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)

Considering Dhaka's high earthquake risk, structural vulnerabilities and centralised emergency response capacity, Dhaka Earthquake and Emergency Preparedness - Enhancing Resilience (DEEPER) project is being implemented to complement the central system by decentralized (ward based) volunteer capacities to ensure swift and effective response to everyday emergencies (such as fires) and major earthquakes. DEEPER aims to achieve the following results;

  1. strengthened systems and volunteer capacities,
  2. enhanced preparedness for response of target wards,
  3. improved emergency preparedness of schools and health facilities, and
  4. increased risk awareness and preparedness amongst the wider population of Dhaka.

Based on organizational experiences and expertise, the activities of DEEPER have been accumulated under each of the above-mentioned organizations. For example, the Red Cross and Red Crescent movement is specialized in working with community-based volunteers in relationship with Government of Bangladesh (GoB) in the humanitarian field. ACF focuses on the psychosocial support and preparedness initiatives of the targeted population under DSCC. As the implementing partner of advocacy focused activities, CA works with different stakeholders including government, non-government and private organizations (NGOs) to achieve DEEPER results.

Purpose of the work:

The webinars and online seminars are expected to create awareness among interest groups on disaster preparedness, disaster risk reduction and resilience compendium.
