It has been five years since the eight-storey Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed, killing 1,134 people and injuring over 2,000 others. We mark this moment by keeping track of efforts being done to ensure the tragedy is not repeated, and highlighting what else is needed.

This page links to stories and initiatives that have been published recently as part of on-going fifth year commemoration efforts by various groups.
