Additional Requirements:
∎ Age 18 to 30 years

Responsibilities & Context:
∎ Extended Community Climate Change Project- Drought (ECCCP- Drought)
∎ Background of the project
∎ Palli Karma-Sahayak Foundation (PKSF), an apex development organization focusing on holistic and integrated approaches, was established by the Government of Bangladesh in May 1990 for sustainable poverty reduction through employment generation. PKSF has been implementing projects and programs in diversified sectors including sustainable enterprise, training and education, agriculture, climate change and disaster, and so on. PKSF works with more than 15 million households through its 200 partner organizations. Many development partners, such as the World Bank, DFID, EU, ADB, IFAD, GIZ, GCF, and Adaptation Fund (AF) are working with PKSF.  Please visit for details.PKSF has been accredited to the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the only dedicated and largest climate change finance window, established under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), in 2013. The GCF has approved the ECCCP-Drought project in the fact that Bangladesh faces an unpredictable drought hazard due to inadequate and uneven rainfall that affects the timing of the onset and end of the monsoon season. The northwestern Barind region/districts of Bangladesh suffer the most from droughts. Climate change is changing the nature of droughts in Barind by increasing temperature and variations in precipitation. During droughts, almost all-natural surface water sources evaporate, leaving none for drinking, sanitation, or agriculture. The human cost is measured in a greater incidence of disease, especially among children and lack of nutrition due to crop failure, increased poverty, and reduced development potential.
∎ Objective of the project

This objective is expected to be achieved by implementing activities covering three main components: i) improved institutional and technical capacities to address climate change-induced drought, ii) increased availability of surface and groundwater for irrigation and drinking, and iii) drought-resilient livelihoods created through sustainable agricultural production.Resource Integration Center (RIC) was Established as a non-government organization in 1981, however registered with Govt. regulatory authority in 1982.
