Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries to the impacts of climate change. As a result, the country has had decades of experience in adaptation.

 

People living in poverty are the worst affected by extreme weather events, such as increased heat waves and salinity, erratic floods and cyclones, and unexpected droughts. This is affecting food security, nutrition, water availability, health and livelihoods - ultimately resulting in displacement and deepening poverty.

BRAC’s integrated approach promotes adaptation and mitigation measures through nature-based solutions and locally-led adaptation to address the impacts of climate change. We work to protect resources and improve access to the tools and knowledge needed to adapt to the adverse climatic impacts and adopt sustainable practices to build resilience.

WHERE WE WORK

 

HOW WE DO IT

 
 

Climate change vulnerability mapping

Identify climate vulnerable areas using climate risk and vulnerability mapping.

Selection of climate-vulnerable communities

Identify vulnerable communities using participatory rural appraisal, climate risk and vulnerability and poverty mapping.

Context-specific and proactive climate-resilient interventions and nature-based solutions

Implement interventions considering area-specific climatic patterns, vulnerability, adaptive capacity and the socio-economic aspects of communities and ecosystems.

Institutional arrangements for in-house environmental management

Manage organisational operations and programmatic activities through policies, green committees and green funding.
 

WHY IT WORKS

 
 

Environment-centric policies

Approaches are implemented at district, community and household levels to keep the environment at the centre of all of our work.

Prioritising resilience and sustainability

Ensures integration of climate change resilience into every stage of programmatic activities and interventions.

Women’s engagement

Promotes women’s participation in mitigation and adaptation efforts, thus enhancing their ability to respond to extreme climatic events.

Climate vulnerability-specific approach

Identifies approaches to minimising, adapting and responding to localised climate risks and vulnerabilities.
