In Bangladesh, due to natural calamities such as floods and cyclones, emergency response is of the utmost significance. Every year, such natural disasters strike Bangladesh, causing thousands of people to lose everything and live in the open air without safe drinking water, food, sanitation, or medical care. Rapid and effective emergency response not only saves lives, but also lessens the impact of catastrophes on communities and livelihoods. The capacity to respond quickly to catastrophes is critical for limiting deaths, delivering urgent medical help, and ensuring impacted populations’ fundamental requirements are satisfied.

In May 2022, Bangladesh was devastated by one of the biggest floods in years, displacing almost 9 million people in Sylhet and Sunamganj and leaving them homeless and without anything.  Furthermore, when the severe cyclonic storm named ‘Hamoon’ made a fierce landfall at Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, on October 24, 2023, it damaged over 30,000 households in the local communities, displacing over 40,000 people, while over 900 shelters housing Rohingya refugees were affected, displacing nearly 800 people. Over 470,000 individuals were affected by the natural disaster, including over 2,500 Rohingya refugees.
