Inspired by Islamic values, IRW supports the world’s most vulnerable people in the fight against poverty and sufferings. IRW does this regardless of race, political affiliation, gender or belief, and without expecting anything in return. IRW has been working in Bangladesh as Islamic Relief Bangladesh (IRB) since 1991, when it provided emergency relief and supported communities to rebuild in the wake of a devastating cyclone. Since then, we IRB have expanded programmes to focus on both humanitarian and development challenges. IRB is currently working in 37 districts across Bangladesh.
IRB is implementing a Program titled “Enhancing Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Resilience in Bangladesh” under MSDP Project. The project is being implemented across 4 districts and 5 upazillas (Sub-district) of Bangladesh. One of the project objectives is to advocate for formulation or revision of necessary laws, rules, policies regarding climate change, disaster risk reduction.
The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) organized the World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai, Japan from 14-18 March, 2015. Through a round of negotiations, representatives from 187 countries have adopted the Sendai Framework as the first major agreement on the post 2015 development agenda on Disaster Risk Reduction for 2015-2030. Adoption of this new Framework for disaster risk reduction opens a major new chapter in sustainable development as it outlines clear targets and priorities for action which will lead to a substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihood, health and health.
So far Bangladesh has taken several necessary and time oriented steps for disaster risk reduction like National Sustainable Development Strategy, Bangladesh Perspective Plan 2010-2021, Sixth Five Year Plan 2011-2015. The government made a division “Disaster Management and Relief Division” upgrading the bureau of disaster management and relief. Department for Disaster Management was established through the Disaster Management Act 2012. Although several administrative reforms have been made, still we have many rooms to improve.
It is noted that in support of the implementation of the Sendai Framework, parliamentarians at the Third UN WCDRR committed to strengthen legislative framework to support a development paradigm that is risk-sensitive and resilient as well as maintaining an institutional continuum through effective pre-disaster recovery planning, preparedness, response, recovery, rehabilitation, and sustainable development measures. It is further noted that the role of parliamentarians as political leaders, legislators, and overseers of government action is integral in disaster risk reduction. Moreover, parliaments, in most countries, can be instrumental in increasing political and economic investment in making socio-economic development disaster resilient and climate proof. Informed legislators can also play an active role in strengthening policies and legislations at national level and their implementation at local level.
