HIRING CONSULTANCY FIRM/AGENCY

Conducting Community Risk Assessment (CRA) and developing Upazila Disaster Management Plan in Suchana Areas

Background

Save the Children (SC) is an independent child rights organization operating in Bangladesh since 1970. Its program areas span across six thematic sectors: Child Rights Governance and Child Protection, Health- Nutrition-HIV/AIDS, Child Poverty, Humanitarian and Education.

Suchana: Ending the cycle of under nutrition in Bangladesh" is a multi-sectoral nutrition Programme which aims to achieve a significant reduction in stunting amongst children under two years of age in Bangladesh by catalyzing support across movement and other stakeholders. Suchana adopts an integrated approach to nutrition specific and nutrition sensitive interventions to prevent chronic malnutrition within the critical 1,000 days from conception until a child reaches its second birthday.  The project will catalyze support across government and other stakeholders for a coordinated, multi-sectoral approach to undernutrition at the national level.

Suchana has been designed to ensure replicability, sustainability and scalability. Together with community mobilization for long term behavior change to support optimal nutrition practices addressing cultural issues driving inter-generational transfer of under nutrition, and community led social accountability strategies linking demand to supply, Suchana will provide important stimuli for sustainable community led change. The two fundamental principles - replicability and scalability - are embedded across the five Suchana project objectives/pillars which are:

  • Improved Nutrition Governance;
  • Improved access and utilization of nutrition services;
  • Better nutrition through improved economic status;
  • Social and behavior change communication; and
  • Generating robust evidence to support scale-up.

It is thus proposed to conduct risk assessment and developing Upazila Disaster Management Plan by a consulting firm/agency on behalf of Save the Children as per following Term of Reference (ToR).
