1.0 Background:
JAGO NARI, the non-political and non-government organization, in partnership with Plan International Bangladesh is implementing the “Inclusive Community Disaster Risk Reduction (ICDRM)” Project for 3 years i.e. 2018-2020. Specifically, ICDRM project activities responded to the overall project implementation plan i.e. at the household, community, local government and national level in favour of women, men, children, aged, and disability amidst vagaries of natural disasters due to the climate change.

In line with our project, JAGO NARI with support from Plan International Bangladesh is implementing a 3-years project titled, “Inclusive Community Disaster Risk Management” in the 3 (three) Unions: Kachia, Rajapur and Bheduria at Bhola Sadar Upazilla under Bhola district. The project outcomes too;

  1. Increased natural disaster preparedness capabilities of communities in Bangladesh;
  2. Identification of elements of a replicable model for building inclusive community-level natural disaster preparedness;
  3. The Emergency Response & Early Recovery Fund results in mitigated impacts of natural disasters on girls, boys and families in countries in Asia where Plan operates.

To better raise public awareness of our work, strengthen our partnerships and improve advocacy efforts, JAGO NARI & Plan International Bangladesh would like to recruit a Bangladesh based company to help produce a document through video documentary that captures our impacts, key results, successes and challenges, best practices and lessons learnt from the projects as well as the entire spectrum of our future program direction.
