Climate Change Awareness, Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction, A Bangladesh Case Study

Bangladesh is not only vulnerable to rising sea levels, but is also one of the most flood  and cyclone prone countries in the world with 25 percent of its geographical area vulnerable. The floods and cyclones not only disrupt and take lives, but also isolate communities, severely affecting the livelihoods and education of the people across the country. Every year, seasonal floods inundate low lying areas, a devastating pattern that is exacerbated by climate change. Studying existing community based coping mechanisms to various climate related disasters is fundamental in order to design appropriate capacity building interventions that mitigate the effects of climate change. Through a study by Kyoto University, the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society  is looking at how its community based disaster risk reduction programmes can meet the current and future challenges of climate change.
