During this long span, ESDO has adapted to the changing situation and provided the most time-bound services, especially for the poor and disadvantaged. A community-focused and people-centered approach has been adopted by ESDO, while consideration was given to the national policy and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as its guiding principle.

∎ SUFAL consortium partners with national and local government to implement AA to address the technical, economic, and institutional barriers limiting its uptake. The project will strengthen flood forecasting early warning by facilitating impact-based forecasting to contextualize forecasts, and identify wide range of community-focused early actions by developing an institutionalized mechanism to initiate FbF/A.

During the monsoon season, SUFAL will test the system established to strengthen the evidence base for AA by assessing its impact and value for money.
