Baseline study of “Flood Resilience Project”
Concern Worldwide has been implementing a pre-event flood resilience project called “Flood Resilience Project” funded by the Zurich Foundation. This project is part of the Zurich Flood Resilience Programme which is being implemented by the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance (ZFRA) partners in different flood vulnerable countries across the world. Concern Worldwide is implementing this project in partnership with ASOD in Gaibandha and Lalmonirhat districts in Bangladesh. The objectives of the project are to contribute to increased spending, improved policies, and improved practices for flood resilience so that flooding does not have a significant negative effect on lives and livelihoods. The project intends to provide a resilience measurement system that can be applied to influence policy decisions and improve funding allocations in support of pre-event flood resilience work..
The objective of the baseline study is to capture baseline information against each outcome and indicator from different sources as outlined in the agreed log frame. This will help understand the starting point of the key elements of the project against which progress will be measured. The indicators range from micro to meso, to macro-level (e.g. community/ household flood resilience, access to services, disaster fund, decision making, increased budget, and implementing government policy at the national and local level).
CRD has been assigned to carry out the baseline study in the project locations.
