In 2012, OCHA placed a Humanitarian Advisor in Bangladesh to play an advisory role to the Resident Coordinator, focusing on supporting improved humanitarian coordination mechanisms and structure, strengthening links with relevant government line ministries and specifically the Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief.
OCHA in Bangladesh will strengthen coordination during disasters, as well as in times of preparedness, to provide neutral, balanced, evidence based assessments, to speed the response at the national and sub-national level.
