GAIBANDHA, March 31, 2023 (BSS) - An inception workshop of a project entitled

"Scaling up Anticipatory Action for Flood Prone Areas in Bangladesh" was held
at the conference room of Sundaganj upazila administration here on Thursday.

SKS Foundation, a non-government organisation which would implement the
project at two flood-prone unions of the upazila, arranged the workshop in
presence of upazila disaster management committee members.

Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Mohammad Al-Maruf presided over the function.
Project Officer Ranjit Kumar Paul said, earlier, such type of project was
implemented at different unions of the district in pilot form at the direct
supervision of the organisation with the financial support of "Save the
Children International".

Later, the project idea had been developed by using the acquired knowledge
and learning based on the opinions and suggestions of all the related
disaster management committees, seniors, union councils, volunteers, flood
victims and flood affected families of the areas, he added.

"The objective of this project is to strengthen the capacity of the relevant
disaster management committees and stakeholders in larger scale so that the
possible flood damage can be reduced significantly by responding to early
flood warnings," he said, adding that the project work started in February
this year and would continue till January, 2024.

At last, he sought overall cooperation from all concerned to make the project
in the upazila a grand success.

After elaborate discussion, many pragmatic recommendations were adopted from
the participants to run the project at Chandipur and Horipur unions of the
upazila properly.

The UNO assured the concerned of providing all sorts of administrative
support to run the project in the aforesaid unions of the upazila fruitfully.
