Scaling up early action: Lessons, challenges and future potential in Bangladesh

Source(s):  Overseas Development Institute (ODI)

This paper investigates the technical, economic and institutional challenges to scaling up forecast-based early action (FbA) in Bangladesh. Taking a political economy approach it examines the structures and policies around disaster management in the country, options for financing, and the forecasting infrastructure and dissemination systems, with a particular focus on cyclones and floods. The paper also examines an FbA pilot by the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (BDRCS) and German Red Cross (GRC), which provided cash assistance based on flood forecasting in Bogura District in northern Bangladesh.
