Welcome to DNA Software
Department of Disaster management (DDM) is the Nodal Agency for Multi Sectoral coordination and Collaboration in conducting Post-disaster Damage and Need Assessment (PDNA). DDM is responsible for collecting and processing SOS and D-Form from field level. Disaster Management Act and Standing Order on Disaster (SOD) mandates that upazillas and districts are to collect data on the damages incurred from any disaster instantly.The SOS form had to submit within 48 hours providing the first hand report of the situation. The D-form has to submit within three weeks in detail report of damage and loss from different sector. The SOS and D form are now prepare and send manually. It takes long time and has possibility of human inexactitude numerical mistake. In addition, there is no way of authentication and back-to-back crosscheck, as well as archive the data.
The DNA software is the online process of sending thesame information. This isa web-based software. The software has the feature of quick crosscheck and sends the report initially. In addition, the software has the feature of citizen reporting by which any people of Bangladesh using the mobile phone (with internet connection) can provide the image and description of the disaster event very quickly from local level. The software also provides the satellite images and database of critical facilities to make the decision for timely response during the emergency. The software provides the baseline to avoid the human inexactitude numerical mistake.
The Vision 2021 of Government of Bangladesh is moving to make a digital Bangladesh. The development of DNA software is a part of that vision as well as correlated with Priority 4: Enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response and to “Build Back Better” in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction of Sendai framework on Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030).
