Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries to adverse climate change impacts, suffering economic losses of over USD 12 billion over the past 40 years.

 

Two-thirds of Bangladesh is less than five meters above sea level. In low-lying plains, intrusion of saltwater, arising from sea level rise, contributed to intensification of food insecurity, unemployed agricultural workers and spread of water-borne diseases. About 2.5 million people experiences shortages of drinking water and for water needed for irrigation in the Southwest and Northwestern regions of Bangladesh.

Our integrated approaches to addressing climate change impacts, is using adaptation and mitigation measures through BRAC’s development initiatives. Our work protects resources, improves quality of life and builds awareness approach about the environment in rural and urban communities. We provide people with access to the tools and knowledge to adapt and respond to adverse climatic impacts and adopt sustainable practices to combat impending climatic impacts.
