About the MISSION

Desired start date:  ASAP

Duration of the mission: 6 months

Location: Dhaka with field visits

SOLIDARITES INTERNATIONAL (SI) opened its mission in Bangladesh at the end of 2007, following cyclone SIDR.

SI’s intervention and strategy in Bangladesh is to address primary needs of crisis affected people in terms of food security, livelihood, disaster risk reduction (DRR), water, hygiene and sanitation (WASH) and shelter, by making use of an integrated disaster risk reduction approach and by taking into account the effects of climate change, whilst working in parallel on mid-long term resilience strategies.

The frequency and impact of natural disasters, as well as the exposure of the country to climate change justifies the involvement of SI in Bangladesh, from a humanitarian point of view. The organization provides emergency response in the wake of natural disasters (cyclones, storms, floods, landslides) and slow onset disaster (waterlogging) in the South-West (Sathkira district) and humanitarian assistance to the communities in the South-East (Cox’s Bazar district) where a significant number of ethnic and religious minorities (especially Rohingya people) also residing amongst local communities, pressuring the natural resources as a result of the rapid population growth.

SI supports displaced people and affected communities immediately after a disaster through the distribution of various kits, cash for work, emergency access to safe drinking water) and in the early recovery phase by livelihood activities, reconstruction of dwellings, etc.  The programs of SI teaches the communities how to become more resilient towards future hazard events this includes how to evacuate people and possessions as soon as possible, how to protect villages and fields by building small-scale infrastructures (dykes, causeways), and how to incorporate adaptive coping strategies for farmers by establishing agricultural practices and livelihoods that are less vulnerable to natural disasters.
