Climate Resilient Ecosystems and Livelihoods (CREL)

Project Title:   Climate Resilient Ecosystems and Livelihoods (CREL)
Type of Project Technical advisory services
Duration:   October, 2012 – September 2017
Status:   Ongoing
Financial Support:   United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
Key words: Natural Resources Management, PA management, Successful Management of critical ecosystems, building resiliency to climate risks for enhanced adaptation to climate change impacts, improve livelihoods.
Main Objective:   The objective of the study is reduce threats to biodiversity, adapt to global climate change impacts, and improve livelihoods; support the GOB’s current climate change adaptation, biodiversity conservation, and natural resources management priorities in agreement with those outlined in the Bangladesh Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan (BCCSAP) and the National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP).
Brief Description: Bangladesh’s large and growing human population, its heavily exploited natural resource base, and a high and persistent level of poverty are integrally related. Poverty in Bangladesh is mainly rural, and is most prevalent within natural resource dependent and landless communities. Natural capital, represented by the nation’s renewable natural resources (notably including its biodiversity resources), is considered central both to poverty alleviation and to future economic growth. The CREL project will ensure successfully implement co-management and biodiversity conservation in the targeted areas of the country: the South (notably the Sundarbans), Northeastern region (Sylhet, Moulvibazaar, Habiganj and Sunamganj districts) and the Southeastern region (Chittagong and Cox’s Bazaar districts).
Output Ensuring successfully implement of co-management and biodiversity conservation in the targeted areas of Bangladesh.
