Enhancing Adaptive Capacity of the Climate-Vulnerable Ultra-Poor Households Affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic in Bangladesh

In response to the critical challenges presented by Bangladesh’s susceptibility to climate change and the additional complexities brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, this project focuses on strengthening socio-economic resilience among targeted climate migrants and climate-vulnerable ultra-poor individuals who are confronting the risks of displacement. By diversifying climate-adaptive livelihood options, providing access to financial services, enhancing life skills, and improving social inclusion, it aims to empower these vulnerable populations. This initiative aligns with various national policies and strategies, aiming to enhance both economic and climate resilience. Through collaboration with local authorities and leveraging existing policies, the project seeks to address the intertwined challenges of climate-induced migration, poverty, and vulnerability while contributing to the broader development goals of the region.
