Bangladesh – 2013: Immediate Response Teams

In Bangladesh, one of most flood prone and natural disaster prone countries, Aquasure settled more than 120 IRT – Immediate Response Teams in partnership with local authorities, international and local NGOs.

An IRT is a decentralized disaster response tool at community level based on:

  • A pre-trained local operator
  • Pre-positioned Aquasure mobile water treatment unit.

One IRT can supply up to 1.000 people with drinking water daily (5L/day/pers.) from the first hours following a disaster. It limits the impact of the disaster on the health of the community.
