Joint visit to CDMP II site in Khulna District by the Norwegian, Danish and Swedish Embassies in Dhaka

Last updated: 08.12.2014 // On December 3rd 2014, the Norwegian Ambassador to Bangladesh, H. E. Ms. Merete Lundemo, the Danish Ambassador to Bangladesh, H. E. Ms. Hanne Fugl Eskjær and Second Secretary of Development Cooperation at the Embassy of Sweden, Mr. Magnus André, visited the Comprehensive Disaster Management Programme (CDMP II) in Bainpara village, Khulna District. The purpose of the visit was to learn more about the interventions that are implemented to increase communities’ resilience towards the impact of natural disasters and climate change.

 

With a coastline stretching more than 700 km, and which is home to more than 30 million people, Bangladesh is extremely vulnerable to natural disasters. The key mandate of the Comprehensive Disaster Management Program (CDMP II), implemented by the Bangladeshi Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief in collaboration with UNDP, is to strengthen the national disaster management activities in Bangladesh with the purpose to reduce risk to and improve communities' response and recovery capacities regarding natural disasters and climate change.

CDMP II, implemented from January 2010 - December 2014, is supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Dhaka. The program interventions include, but are not limited to agricultural and maritime adaptation; ensuring safe drinking water and sanitation facilities; promoting sustainable sources of energy through adoption of solar panels; and building climate resilient houses and flood embarkments.
