“South Asia Women’s Resilience Index” Sharing event

There is an event named National Sharing of The South Asia Women’s Resilience Index, designed and constructed by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in collaboration with Actionaid.

The event will be held on 1st December, 2014 at the Shagor-Runi Audotium, The Dhaka Reporters Unity, 8/4-A Topkhana Road, Segun Bagischa, Dhaka-1000 from 2pm to 3pm.

This report discusses the findings of the South Asia Women’s Resilience Index (WRI), a tool that assesses countries’ capacity for disaster risk reduction and recovery and the extent to which the needs of women are being integrated into national resilience-building efforts.

Bangladesh has been affected by a number of disasters in recent years, drawing attention to the country’s vulnerability and pushing disaster risk reduction (DRR) and resilience up development and policymaking agendas.

There are number of other findings that are very important for Bangladesh especially prior to the World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in March 2015, in Sendai, Japan, where the world leaders are to sign a new long term agreement on DRR.

It has relevance for the Climate negotiations as well that will kick off in December- CoP 20- in Lima, Peru.
