USAID Series Examines Risk Reduction Activities In Bangladesh

USAID’s “IMPACTblog” introduces the newest installment of the agency’s “Pounds of Prevention” series, which focuses on risk reduction activities in Bangladesh. “Bangladesh is one of the world’s most hazard-prone countries, susceptible to earthquakes, droughts, flooding, tidal surges, and cyclones,” USAID writes in an accompanying document (.pdf), adding, “To meet the challenges posed by these threats as well as the effects of climate change, USAID, the Government of Bangladesh, and their partners have invested in a comprehensive approach to disaster risk reduction” (Fleming, 1/4).
