Strengthening Emergency Preparedness and Resilience
in Bangladesh (SERB)

SERB addresses institutional and technical capacity gaps in disaster response at the national and local levels. It focuses on developing safer health facilities by assessing their safety and upskilling health workers. 

The program also seeks to create competent Urban Community Volunteers and strengthen their network in Bangladesh, who can be deployed in case of emergencies. 

SERB assists the Government of Bangladesh in achieving an integrated approach to emergency management at national and community levels, supporting the ongoing and past efforts in emergency preparedness.
