Enhancing adaptive capacities of coastal communities, especially women, to cope with climate change induced salinity Approved February 2018 Est. implementation period 6.0 years
Strengthening the adaptive capacity of coastal communities, especially women, to cope with the impacts of climate-induced salinity on their livelihoods and water security.

The coastal belt of Bangladesh is vulnerable to cyclones, storm surges, and sea-level rise, which have recently been observed to be becoming more intense. Increased occurrence of these hazards is accelerating saltwater intrusion into the fresh water resources along Bangladesh's coastline. 

The strengthening of adaptive capacities in this project is projected to reduce the adverse impacts to agricultural livelihoods that are freshwater dependent, and to address the availability and quality of drinking water in vulnerable coastal communities. This community-based approach in planning and managing climate-resilient water supply targets the highly vulnerable, specifically women and girls.

The project has an estimated lifespan of 6 years.
