Floods in Sunderbans 2017

UBU and our Indian partner organisation, JGVK, work on strengthening the resilience of the civil society towards floods from cyclones and the annual monsoon rain. Flooding destroys homes and farm land belonging to the most vulnerable populations. Through awareness campaigns and workshops in villages, the locals learn how to prevent the damages. The Indian project staff and the villagers develop disaster risk mitigation plans, which can be used to advocate for receiving funding from the local authorities to implement the plans.
