Collaborative Partnership with Government to Influence Effective Preparedness and Response

Project: Talent Development 19th December 2017

The Humanitarian Trainee Scheme (HTS) of the Talent Development project (TD), led by Save the Children, began in 2015 as an initiative to strengthen capacity of youth seeking a career in the humanitarian sector. The entry-level trainee scheme combines practical learning with rigorous academic study, residential training, distance learning, assignments and field deployment. The course is also helpful for humanitarian practitioners who would like to build upon their prior experience and gain professional qualifications.

The Department of Disaster Management (DDM) under the Disaster and Relief Ministry in Bangladesh has taken significant steps to build up institutional mechanisms for effective and systematic disaster management at national and local levels. Thus, the HTS in Bangladesh has established a partnership with the DDM, and has collaborated with them on several accounts.

This case study explores the Talent Development project’s successful engagement with the Bangladesh government.
