Effective humanitarian coordination aims to ensure the best use of resources to achieve the most appropriate and relevant response to the needs of people affected by a crisis. Increasingly in Bangladesh, as in other contexts, there is recognition not only that preparedness for a coordinated response is important, but also that specific preparedness for a coordinated response needs to take place embedded in a disaster risk reduction context and within the overall development framework for the country as a whole.
