Oxfam GB’s River Basin Programme has been running in the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna basin in India, Bangladesh and Nepal since 1999. This evaluation focuses on Bangladesh – a living delta of South Asia and composed of the floodplains. The RBP is operational here in flood prone areas including char areas; chars (sandbars) are particularly prone to recurrent floods that are increasing precariousness of people’s lives by wiping out their assets and pushing them into viscous poverty cycle. This evaluation report highlights impact of the River Basin Programme and also assesses the difference between status of beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries on key indicators related to risk reduction. The report further highlights the difference that the RBP is making in the lives of the poor people and creating disaster resilient communities.
