L.S.US.Q.NO.1355 FOR 18.12.2018

i. Early warning and communication system by improving the Last Mile connectivity.
ii. Construction and sustainable maintenance of Multi-purpose Cyclone Shelters (MPCSs), Improved access and evacuation to these and already existing MPCSs and habituations through construction of roads and bridges, construction of coastal embankments in selected places for protection against storms, flooding and storm surge in high risk areas and underground cabling.

iii. Enhanced capacity and capability of local communities to respond to disasters, and Strengthening Disaster Risk Mitigation (DRM) capacity at Central, State and Local levels in order to enable mainstreaming of risk mitigation measures into the overall development agenda.

The Project has the following four principle components:

Component A – Last Mile Connectivity
Component B- Structural and Non Structural Measures
Component C- Technical Assistance for Cyclone Hazard Risk Mitigation Capacity Building and knowledge creation.
Component D- Project Management and Implementation Support.

L.S.US.Q.NO.1355 FOR 18.12.2018
