The national FOREWARN platform was launched in Bangladesh on the 4th of November, 2019 with the aim to localise the global model of FOREWARN to a national level due to the need felt by Start Fund Bangladesh and Start Network.
FOREWARN Bangladesh aims to bring together academics, sectoral experts, and forecasting information providers, with humanitarians and community representatives. It seeks to better link and align the way that these multi-disciplinary experts and humanitarian communities look at critical issues of disaster risk, forecast, and crisis anticipation in order to provide more timely, effective, and appropriate support to communities at-risk before a disaster strikes. FOREWARN Bangladesh provides vital insight and practical recommendations to the Anticipation work of Start Fund Bangladesh.
