∎ Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world in terms of sea-level rising, increasing number of powerful cyclones, floods, water logging, salinity, drought, windstorm, soil erosion and more. Moreover, a 2018’s U.S. government report found that around 90 million Bangladeshis (56 percent of the population) live in “high climate exposure areas,” with 53 million subject to “very high” exposure. Among the most climate vulnerable countries in the world, Bangladesh is ranked 7th with 28.33 score (Climate Risk Index - CRI) for 2000-2019). Regarding climate vulnerability index, Bangladesh is ranked 164 among 182 countries with a score of 36.9 only. Therefore, a lower rank and score in this regard not only represents the country’s vulnerability against climate change, but also lack of readiness to improve resilience. At present 20.5% people are living below the poverty line and out of this 6.5% are extreme poor in rural area (HIES 2022, BBS). Apart from this, around 18.54% people are new poor (drop from above poverty line) due to severely affected by COVID-19 management measures (e.g., lockdown, movement restriction), disruption of production and market, high inflation and price of food items and major currency devaluation. Recent increase of fuel price is around 50% that further increased the transportation and production cost which is leading to increase poverty and hunger, curtal of meal intake and inadequate quantity, variety, and quality of food among the people living below poverty line. Low-income groups and the people living below poverty line, uncared elderlies, marginal farmers, women headed households, ethnic minorities, orphan families, day laborer etc. are the worst victim of current and anticipated situation. This project targeted 2 sub-districts Companiganj and Phulbari respectively under Sylhet and Kurigram districts. Poverty of the targeted sub-districts’ are respectively 11.2% and 69%. Both sub-districts are exposed to frequent flooding almost every year and soil erosion is a recurrent phenomenon. As a result, targeted areas peoples’ extreme poverty, vulnerability, seasonal and force migration, food insecurity and hunger, malnutrition etc. are very high. Their access to basic health, education, employment, mobility to socio-economic activities etc. are also very low. In Companiganj, many extreme poor family’s livelihoods were mainly depending on collecting of stones from the riverbed that comes from the Meghalaya hill tracks. Recently Bangladesh governments has forbidden collection of stones from the river for environmental concerns. It has brought major impact in local employment and income what people were doing from many years and generation to generation. On the other hand, in the Phulabari area, seasonality in agriculture, limited economic mobility and recurrent flooding made people extremely vulnerable to food security and income. To address these issues, impacts and challenges, this project will work for building assets, skill and capacities, socio-economic protection and empowerment at households and community level; addressing structural issues at societal level and resilience building at local, regional, and national level through strengthening capacities on anticipatory actions and preparedness in DRR, learning and research findings sharing, formation of specific platforms involving Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and government relevant officials. The project will initiate CSOs, stakeholders and relevant government departmental officials’ collective action for system change and adopting pro-poor and climate risk adaptation and resilience building related policies and resource allocation from government for the affected and vulnerable areas where people are frequently facing different climate induced hazards. Implementation of the activities will adapt Locally Led Adaptation (LLA) and Nature based Solution (NbS) and approaches.
