Plan of Action for Disaster Risk Management:
Peoples Development Community (PDC) is working for marginalized and vulnerable community in the rural and
urban areas of Bangladesh. It works in various sectors including Disaster Risk Management.
PDC feel that natural Hazard is any natural event which has an adverse socio-economic impact on the
human being. Alternatively, an extreme natural event, such as a cyclone, an earthquake or a flood, that is
not caused by human beings. These are naturally occurring phenomena that only become hazardous due
to the intervention of human infrastructure. The vulnerability of human infrastructure to destruction (risk)
by a disaster is also an important factor in understanding natural hazards. The distribution and impact of
natural hazards is unequal with greatest loss of life and property in the developing part of the world. This
is not because of greater hazard frequency but simply because of greater vulnerability. PDC has planned
for managing the risks of disaster as mentioned below:
- Articulate the long-term strategic focus of disaster management in Bangladesh.
- Demonstrate a commitment to address key issues: risk reduction, capacity building, information
management, climate change adaptation, livelihood security, issues of gender and the socially
- Show the relationship between the government vision, key result areas, goals and strategies, and
to align priorities and strategies with international and national drivers for change.

achievements of the strategic goals and government vision on disaster management.
