HCTT NEXUS STRATEGY (2021-2025): Humanitarian-Development Collaboration for Climate-Related Disasters in Bangladesh
22 August 2021
The HCTT Nexus Strategy for Climate-related Disasters 2021-2025 is a humanitarian preparedness and response strategy developed to support the National Plan for Disaster Management (NPDM) 2021-25 and to complement the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) for Bangladesh in relevant areas.
The document portrays an evidence-based estimate of humanitarian needs in the disaster situation combining existing analysis on climate-related risks with humanitarian conditions across high-risk districts in Bangladesh. The focus is on three types of climate related hazards: floods, cyclones and storm surges, and landslides. Based on this analysis and estimated humanitarian impacts, the Nexus Strategy outlines strategic objectives and key actions for 2021-2025 across the areas of risk and impact analysis, priority preparedness action, partnership for institutional capacity and action plan for response. Through these strategic objectives and corresponding actions, the Nexus Strategy provides a framework for coordinated activities for the HCTT and the wider humanitarian community, addresses gaps in current efforts, and complements efforts by the Government of Bangladesh (GoB). Special emphasis is placed on the importance of innovative financing mechanisms which are at the core of effective disaster management and promoting key actions to further strengthen consistent disaster risk financing and anticipatory action planning.
