In the GDN Bangladesh Hub, individuals, organizations and institutions (government and non – government) working on gender and disaster management issues are acting as the key members. The GDN Bangladesh Hub added value to GDN globally as well as the equitable and sustainable development agenda of the country. The network is a knowledge sharing and advocacy platform to promote gender issues more effectively in Bangladesh.
