Emergency Preparedness Project

Under this program, CARE India facilitated a series of Disaster Preparedness activities in states, closest to disaster prone regions. Due to the geological changes and intense pressure of human habitation, the frequency of disasters has increased tremendously in the recent years. CARE India is working with the concerned state government agencies, as well as, community groups to improve awareness and streamline systems of preparedness.

Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal

Highlights

  • Identify partners, who will be better equipped to conduct VCA and respond in case of any emergency in their districts as well as their neighbouring districts.
  • Operationalize resource and information centers: District Emergency Operation Centres will have improved coordination and communication mechanisms for preparedness, response and recovery. Influence District Disaster Management Plan to include strategies for addressing needs of women and girls who are most vulnerable in disaster situation.
  • Create a ‘process document’ informed by experiences through this intervention that will act as a ready reference across CARE programs.
