PSTC is implementing the ‘Strengthening urban resilience through enhanced preparedness and evidence based
advocacy for improved multi-level co-ordination mechanisms in Bangladesh’ with the support of Plan Bangladesh
since July 2017.
The aim of the project is to increase institutional capacity to operationalize inclusive policy, frameworks and
planning which minimize urban disaster risks particularly earthquake and fire. PSTC works holistically to improve
the existing risk reduction mechanisms of communities, institutions and critical infrastructure such as schools,
hospitals and the private sector.
This project is working on creating evidence to advocate for increased efficiency of government implementation,
local level community bodies such as the Ward Disaster Management Committee (WDMC), Community
volunteers, women and child groups. It is a consortium project jointly with Save the Children Bangladesh. The
project financed by European Commission – Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid Operations – ECHO.
