Management plan for community based adaptation to climate change through coastal afforestation in Bangladesh
14 July 2011 | Project completed
Bangladesh is generally considered to be very vulnerable to climate change effects because of its unique geographic location, dominance of floodplains, very low average altitude, high population density, elevated level of poverty and overwhelming dependence on nature, its resources and services.
- Capture general information, and specific socio-economic and environmental baselines for the targeted upazilas
- Identify factors contributing to vulnerability of each location
- Develop action plans, including a monitoring and evaluation framework, and options for coastal afforestation and climate resilient livelihoods.
- Produced adaptation management plans for each union.
- Identified 15,000 beneficiary families to be involved in the establishment of nurseries and plantations, and an additional 12,200 people to receive training
- Of the above group 1,150 families were identified for training on improved livelihood options, including 360 in poultry and livestock and 60 in modern aquaculture
- Assessed needs for early warning information and disaster preparedness in the targeted areas
- All action plans, monitoring and evaluation framework and proposal for institutional and policy arrangements were validated by stakeholders.
