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 onset and end of the monsoon season. The northwestern Barind region/districts of Bangladesh suffer the most from droughts.
