Building Safer Communities in South Asia

The South Asia Regional Delegation in consultation with its partners has developed a regional disaster risk reduction programme entitled: “Building Safer Communities in South Asia”. This programme aims to draw together regional experiences and knowledge to harmonise and standardize Red Cross Red Crescent risk reduction trainings, systems and tools. These will be used in communities all over South Asia and will be made available to all movement partners and external organisations. These will serve to strengthen cooperation with other vital actors in the region at local and national levels. This page presents resources related to the “Building Safer Communities in South Asia” programme, including a case study from Bangladesh. Published in 2007.
