BD example of courageous progress in disaster preparedness
The Center for Excellence-Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance (CFE-DM) has appreciated Bangladesh’s efforts in significantly improving its disaster preparedness terming Bangladesh a ‘regional example of courageous progress’. “Despite the vulnerability of Bangladesh to cyclones and other natural disasters, the country has made a significant progress in improving its disaster preparedness,” said Director of the Center Col Joseph D. Martin. He said Bangladesh stands as a ‘regional example of the courageous progress’ that can be made by a nation and ‘time-tested’ civil-military relationships stand ready to support the government if they need assistance. Martin, in his recent article titled ‘Civil-military coordination in disaster response benefits all,’ mentioned this describing how Bangladesh remains a model for many other reasons.
