Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) organized the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Workshop ‘Towards Resilient Dhaka City’ on March 14, 2019. Md Atiqul Islam, the newly elected Mayor of DNCC, highlighted Dhaka’s experience and leadership on DRR that can be a good example for other cities to learn from.

The workshop participants had the opportunity to share their experience with relevant stakeholders and to connect the city with community level initiatives.
