El nuevo Marco para la RRD post-2015 presentado en marzo, en la Conferencia Mundial para la Reducción del Riesgo de Desastres en Sendai (Japón), les pide a los distintos grupos que definan su propio papel en el logro de los resultados del marco. Estas son las seis funciones que las organizaciones de la sociedad civil (OSC) pueden realizar para asegurarse de que el Marco para la RRD post-2015 tiene un impacto en la primera línea.

After first day, I think that the GNDR might be in danger of slipping into the weary state of resignation to the 'art of the possible' expressed by the direction of UNISDR -- 'the HFA has "just begun", so let's not change to a new framework' (my paraphrase). OK, national governments have become used to the HFA and might find it inconvenient to change. But a definition of madness is to continue to do the same thing, continue to get bad results and just carry on! The HFA fails to address root causes (underlying risk factors) such as corruption and and grabbing. Are these 'underlying risk factors' really 'there' in HFA's Priority Area 4, as the UNISDR director asserts, only waiting to be 'pulled out'? Are there really alien spaceships in Area 51. Nonsense and more nonsense!
Let's not by cynical and weary. Civil society must articulate goals. So why not scrap the HFA and replace it with a binding treaty on the HUMAN RIGHT TO PROTECTION FROM AVOIDABLE HARD FROM NATURAL HAZARDS?
With the support from Islamic Relief USA Islamic Relief, Bangladesh has initiated new project at Khulna and Satkhira (the most vulnerable districts to natural disaster among others). The title of the project is "Enhanching Resilience of climate affected communities in the South-Western Bangladehs".
This project will be implemented over a period of two years. It will contribute to improve the quality of life, reduction in poverty and inequality through building community resilience to natural disasters which will ultimately reduce loss and increase human productivitiy. This will be achieved through increased capacity of communities in the face of disaster and community risk in the South-Western region of Bangladesh. The project activities will directly contribute in reducing the risks of hazards in the region through advocating for a sustainable solution of the root-causes of disasters.
The project will target local communities as well as institutions as target beneficiaries. The proposed intervention has targeted woemn, children, PWDs and the elderly and will ensure the inclusion of these socially excluded groups and their mainstreaming throughout disaster planning and management. At the national level, two Government Ministries will be targeted under the proposed intervention; namely Ministries of Environment and Ministry of Disaster and Relief. Target institutions at the local level include school, CBOs and local level governance structures such as the Union Parishad, Upazila Parishad, DMCs and SMCs.
The project will focus providing improved shelters, livelihoods, infrastructures and the institutional strengthening for disaster risk reduction. Their organizatinal capacity, networks for advocacy and local early warning system will be also supported. Community mobilization will be undertaken for structural mitigation at community level to make the DRR a culture.
Nine people, including four family members, were injured when a gas cylinder exploded in a city estate at the weekend.
Four houses were extensively damaged by the blast in Jericho Estate. Two others were slightly damaged.
The owner of the cylinder, Mr Fredrick Mwangi, said he had just arrived home after visiting his daughter studying at Kabaa Girls High School when the incident occurred on Saturday at 6.30pm.
Receiving first aid
“I switched on the sitting room light and the next thing I heard was a huge explosion, which threw me out with the children,” said Mr Mwangi after receiving first aid at Jericho Health Centre.
He said the cylinder could have leaked, causing the explosion that left burns on his legs.
Neighbours initially thought it was grenade explosion. However, police officers told them that it was a gas cylinder that had exploded.
