Resilience Strategy Framework and Theory of Change for NARRI Consortium 2015 – 2020
Globally vulnerability among communities affects the process of human development. Recurring natural hazards are empirically traced with incidents that include death, asset loss, food and water insecurity, lack of access to health services, disruption in access to market services and above all disrupted livelihoods. In Bangladesh, people living in vulnerability are exposed to similar threats. Therefore, building resilience for the affected has become crucial for eventual growth and development.
National Alliance for Risk Reduction and Response Initiatives (NARRI) with its ten member organizations steps in with its long experience to address local problems keeping global progression into consideration. Through DIPECHO and ECHO funded previous and existing projects activities, the consortium members are already working on early preparedness to ensure access to early warning message, food and water security, develop response plans and few others for the vulnerable groups. However, acting as a single platform gives NARRI the strength to advocate, influence and negotiate with social and market actors as well as to envision long term strategic goals for the consortium.
