Bangladesh is prone to recurring natural hazards due to its geographical position and topography. The country has suffered casualties and damage to homes, agriculture, and the economy as a result of tropical cyclones. Effective disaster management approaches are required to reduce the risk of disaster and loss. The Constitution of Bangladesh plays an active role in implementing these approaches at the national and sub-national level. This article analyzes parts of the Constitution addressing disaster management by ensuring disaster governance and adaptive governance. To examine the theoretical aspects of disaster management from a global and Bangladesh perspective, the current institutional role for disaster management, the difference in service delivery for specific organizations, and human rights and humanitarian aspects, a study was conducted based on secondary data and information. Bangladesh's supreme law supports all phases of the disaster management cycle. Consequently, it is said that the Constitution would be an essential document for effective disaster management at all levels.
