Project Title:   Building Adaptation Strategy to Climate Change for Selected Drought and Flood Prone Areas of Bangladesh.
Type of Project Climate Change Study
Duration:   January 2006-December 2007
Status:   Complete
Partner Organizations:   Bangladesh Environmental Lawyers Association (BELA), NOVIB, Oxfam, and BCAS
Key words: Flood, Drought, Livelihood Security, Climatic Impact
Main Objective:   To undertake a comprehensive assessment of changes in water cycle, changing pattern of flood and intensity of drought, and causes behind such changes.
Brief Description: This project was located in Tangail (Inside and outside embankment), Nawabganj and Rajshahi (areas characterized with severe and moderate drought). The project made an assessment of changes in water cycle, changing flood patterns, intensity of drought, reasons behind such changes, consequences of such changes on the rights of local people including their livelihood, security, practices and reliance on agriculture, forests, fisheries, housing sectors and gender relations.
