Facilitation on Refreshers Training on Disaster Risk (DRR) Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) for Community Leaders
Islamic Relief, Bangladesh (IRB) is implementing a comprehensive and integrated programme in the southwest coastal areas as well as in the haor basin to increase the resilience of the vulnerable communities against a changing and uncertain climate. In this particular programme Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and poverty reduction are strongly integrated in terms of activities and quest of knowledge. IRB is implementing a project titled “Enhancing Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Resilience in Bangladesh” through support from DFID and Islamic Relief, UK through the UK Aid Match Fund scheme in five Upazillas (Sub-district) in Bangladesh. The project is being implemented across 4 districts and 5 upazillas (Sub-district). Through programmes in IRB, the community will be armed with the knowledge and capacity to reduce their vulnerability to climate change and natural disasters in the future.
Past experiences of disaster and the hazardous environment in which they live have shaped the way in which communities and individuals are responding to risks: the population is characterized by a low level of resilience to disaster, a consequence not only of the huge damage done through years of being exposed to disasters, but also in part due to the lack of Knowledge (indigenous or otherwise) on resilience issues. Furthermore, climate change is posing problems in the form of changes in weather patterns, erratic rainfall, increase in sea level and increases in the level of salinity in soil and water. IRB projects aim to build capacity of communities to be ready for the impact of climate change and disasters.
