∎ Report to: Project Coordinator (PC)
∎ Duration of the Position: Initially for one year with the possibility of annual renewal up to project periods.
∎ Background of the project: Bangladesh's coastal zone's geographical location and low elevation make it vulnerable to disasters and climate change poses a new challenge to the lives and livelihoods in the coastal region. The vulnerability of these coastal people can be defined in three ways: climate-sensitive livelihoods, vulnerable settlements in low-lying areas, and scarcity of safe drinking water. Many coastal residents depend on seasonal subsistence agriculture and agriculture wage labor, which are highly climate-sensitive. Moreover, many coastal inhabitants live in houses built of mud and plants severely affected by cyclones, storm surges, and high tides. The lack of climate-resilient housing poses a serious poverty trap as significant portions of the incomes of coastal communities go towards house repairs. Under this circumstance, to develop a climate-adaptive coastal community in Bangladesh by adopting climate-resilient housing and livelihood technologies, the Green Climate Fund (GCF) under the United Nations Framework Convention of Climate Change (UNFCCC) approved “Resilient Homestead and Livelihood Support to the Vulnerable Coastal People of Bangladesh (RHL),” a five-year project (from September 2023 to August 2028). The project has chosen seven exposed coastal districts, namely Khulna, Bagerhat, Satkhira, Barguna, Patuakhali, Bhola, and Cox’s Bazar, which are particularly vulnerable to sea level rise, salinity intrusion, coastal flooding, cyclones, and storm surges due to their geographical position (for details about PKSF, please visithttps://www.greenclimate.fund/project/fp206).The primary goal of the RHL project is to enhance the climate resilience of the vulnerable coastal communities of Bangladesh. PKSF will implement the project (for details about PKSF, please visithttp://www.pksf.org.bd) through its Partner Organizations (known as implementing Entities for this Project) as a Direct Access Entity (DAE) of GCF.
∎ Unnayan Prochesta the Partner Organization of PKSF will implement the RHL project in Assasuni, Satkhira as an Implementing Entity (IE) of the RHL Project.
