Emergency aid will be able to reach communities in Bangladesh more quickly through a new local crisis response fund set up by a global network of aid agencies.
The £10 million Start Fund Bangladesh, designed to enabled aid agencies to respond early and fast to under-the-radar emergencies, has been set up by the Start Network and is funded by the UK government.
From this month (April) it can activate funding within 72 hours of receiving a crisis alert, and is accessible to national and international Start Network member NGOs within Bangladesh.
On 21 May, around midday local time (0600 GMT), Tropical Cyclone Roanu made landfall along the southern coastal districts of Bangladesh, bringing heavy rain, winds of up to 88km/h, and storm surges of up to 2m (AFP 21/05/2016).

The Government has not confirmed this figure. Local aid groups reported on 21 April displacement of over 5,000 people during the first week of the conflict. An estimated 1,000 children are among the newly displaced.
