This case study is about preparing the urban communities for earthquake hazard through organizing the communities and activating the service providers(organizations responsible for responding to earthquake hazard).

Being a pilot initiative, the project was intervened in 16 communities/ wards of Dhaka City that were selected based on their receptivity and vulnerability through community participation.

It features the various approaches of empowering the communities through linking with service providers (SPs), raising peoples’ awareness, enhancing communities’ capacity and activating the service providers. The success of this initiative was involving the Ward Commissioners who played the lead role for organizing community activity.
