    • Identification of key government institutions through a processDialoguing with the institutions & bringing them on board for strengthening their function & DRR mainstreaming (e.g. DPHE, Flood Forecasting Centre, WDMC )Exploring the gap in DRR with the particular institutionsIdentifying the area of interfaceSigning a formal Memorandum of Understanding and work plan
    • • Complement and supplement government initiatives• Objective to ensure various CRA as a common methodology and tools for DRR interventions in the village• Review the government recognized tools and processes• Train a cadre of community based volunteers, government officials, local leaders to facilitate the process• To create ownership the project team consciously acts as an outsider giving inputs when required
    • • Based on the CRA, RRAP is done marking various initiatives to be carried out along with the resources required and responsibility• The RRAP is validated at various levels by the Union, UpZilla, District Authorities and submitted to the Government through CDMP• The RRAP used as an advocacy tool by the community to mobilize resources• The RRAP used as a planning tool (DRR and Response) by other agencies
    • • Mass Media Campaign on Disaster Risk Reduction• Harmonization of the training curriculum and modules• HFA reporting• Study on WASH with recommendations to DPHE• Impact and CBA of various DIPECHO programs in Bangladesh: Tools for advocacy• Study on comprehensive earthquake preparedness• Strengthening EWS by supporting in gap analysis, e.g. GoB led workshop• Orientation of key Government Stakeholders on earthquake preparedness through exposure visit
    • Established coordination with DIPECHO partners in South Asia and S E AsiaEfforts are on to establish an interface with SDMCExploring the possibilities with DSA and DSEA on joint advocacy plan for AMCDRR
    • • Greater negotiating power• Larger visibility• Cost Reduction• Better coordination within the partners• Joint advocacy planning and implementation• Ability to take up larger roles and responsibilities (joint effort in various national level programs, policy issues)• Standardized approach (various guidelines, training modules, reference materials)• Replication of learning and good practices• Improved communication with donor and other key stakeholders• Better outcome and impact: six organizations giving the inputs on different issues
    • • Large consortium: not many examples to learn from• Process oriented and sometimes time consuming• Working with the government: some of the activities might be altered• Civil and political unrest is forecasted to increase• Partners have different procurement and financial policies and procedures• Sometimes difficult to adopt standardize procedures and tools as some partner’s have different organizational focus (Children, Women etc.).
