Update: Impact of COVID-19 and monsoon rains in flood vulnerable communities of Bangladesh
In April-May 2020, Concern Worldwide, Mercy Corps, and Practical Action, members of the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance in Bangladesh, published a report on the impact of COVID-19 in flood vulnerable communities based on structured questionnaire surveys to understand the compound risks of the pandemic and the monsoon season. Since the initial analysis, Bangladesh has been devastated with one of the worst and longest-lasting flooding in recent years with at least a quarter of the country under water. Officials reported more than four million people affected and a million homes inundated. COVID-19 cases are still rising, leading to health and socio-economic challenges. Mercy Corps conducted three remote online discussions with the 15 UDMCs and the findings are presented in this report.
