Atique proposes new tag "Love Dhaka" to make resilient city
Newly elected Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Md Atiqul Islam proposed a new tagline for the capital styled "Love Dhaka" for creating mass awareness to make the country's largest city a resilient one.
"We don't need to take example from other cities, let us make Dhaka an example to others," he said this on Thursday while speaking an international workshop at a city hotel here.
The workshop on 'Towards Resilient Dhaka City' was organized by DNCC, SEEDS Asia and the World Bank.
It was arranged aimed at sharing experiences from two projects - "Urban Resilience Project (URP)-DNCC Part" supported by World Bank, and "Capacity building for Community Based Disaster Risk Reduction in Urban Area of Bangladesh" implemented by DNCC and SEEDS Asia supported by JICA as well as to discuss the way forward to make Dhaka a resilient city.
During the workshop, the mayor also unveiled a newly published booklet, "Nagar Pratyasha," that is a compilation of extensive research based DRR (Disaster Risk Reduction) knowledge by experts and community members in North Dhaka city.
