The goal of this initiative is to strengthen the resilience of coastal communities of Bangladesh from the threats of  climate change through ecosystem and livelihoods protection. More specifically the project will improve the adaptive capacity of four villages (400 households directly) of Atulia union of Satkhira district by introducing appropriate knowledge and technologies to cope with increased salinity conditions over the project period. In doing so, the proposed initiative will demonstrate relevant adaptive measures, approaches, and interventions that will build resilience of the salinity-affected vulnerable communities in terms of biodiversity and ecosystem management thereby reducing their climatic risks and securing their employment, food and income.
