Staff Reporter :
Speakers said at a seminar on "Localization with Media for Institutionalizing understanding of Humanitarian Response at local level" that being a disaster prone country, Bangladesh is not yet well prepared with the logistic equipment to protect disaster.  To deal with the disaster, eastern traditions have to be raised.
Press Institute Bangladesh (PIB) and National Alliance of Humanitarian Actors Bangladesh (NAHAB) jointly organized the seminar at PIB on Wednesday. Md. Shah Alamgir, Director of PIB was in the chair while Abdul Latif Khan, Technical Adviser of NAHAB, Md. Mofizur Rahman, Professor, Department of Mass Communication and Journalism, Iftekhar Mahmud, Senior reporter of Prothom Alo, Dr Abdun Nur Tushar, CEO of Nagorik TV also take part in the discussion.
Md. Mofizur Rahman said that the main challenge of disaster journalism is lack of logistic support. There were many training to counter-disaster, but the quality did not increase. Information should be shared at the time of disaster. PIB may be the focal point at this regard.  In order to counter the disaster, eastern traditions have to be raised instead of western traditions.
Abdun Nur Tushar said that effective steps will be taken prior to combat the disaster.  Because TV stations have no underwater camera and have no sufficient training to capture the real scenario of ship siege accident. So it needs for quality and sufficient of disaster journalism training by the government.
