Conducting Comprehensive Baseline Survey for “Promoting Disaster Ready Inclusive Preparedness towards Adaptation (PRODRIPTA/ প্রদৃপ্ত)”

Care Bangladesh is going to implement Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies’ (MACP) “Promoting Disaster Ready Inclusive Preparedness towards Adaptation (PRODRIPTA/প্রদৃপ্ত).” project in both districts to overcome worsening situation induced by climate change with the focus on introducing and implementing structural and non-structural, innovative, and sustainable interventions, promoting local/indigenous knowledge alongside with the modern technologies for innovative solution of existing challenges, catalysing women and youth as the social change agent and resilient climate player through building their capacities, supporting system development and fostering inclusive community resilience, linkage development with GoB agencies, private sectors, and also encouraging local communities for disaster readiness.

Center for People and Environ (CPE) is a research and knowledge management organization providing the baseline study service by reviewing related secondary documents and information, incorporating primary information (qualitative and quantitative) through participatory research against outcome indicators of PRODIPTO.

The objective of the baseline study

The broad objective of the baseline study is to develop baseline indicators following the logical framework of the project. 

The specific objectives of the study are:

  • To capture baseline data for selected project indicators mentioned in Monitoring and Evaluation and Learning (MEL) plans;
  • To collect baseline data beyond project MEL plan on community disaster readiness, indigenous knowledge on early warning, early actions and disaster response to identify unmet humanitarian needs, new groups, and stakeholders as well as gender-based violence (GBV), control over resources of women and men. This will ensure that project achievement can be effectively assessed during mid-term and end-line evaluation and foster learning.
