Reducing the Risk of Disaster through Promotion of Rights and Good Governance


  • Reduce the vulnerability of people living in disaster prone areas through improved governance and promoting human rights.


At the center of the project there is community empowerment. By helping communities to take action at a household level, and claim the services they are entitled to, BDPC seeks to give communities the opportunity to embark on a pathway of sustainable development, despite the ongoing challenge of disaster.
