OUR WORK - ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY

Bangladesh’s is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to the effects of climate change. The loss of biodiversity, rising sea levels, devastating cyclones, floods and drought are concrete impacts of the global temperature rise. The poor are disproportionately affected by this degradation and lack access to crucial resources to adapt their living to the on-going environmental threats.
