Climate Resilient Sustainable Coastal Forestry in Bangladesh

The objective of the Project is to reduce forest degradation and increase forest coverage through participatory planning/monitoring to contribute in building the long-term climate resilience of selected communities in coastal areas of Bangladesh.

The coast of Bangladesh is extremely vulnerable to natural disasters like cyclones, storm surges, tidal floods, river erosion and salinity intrusion. The project will promote climate resilient livelihood activities in targeted areas by following a conservation-linked value chain approach. This is expected to improve and diversify non-forest-based livelihood opportunities of poor forest-dependent households in selected communities and thus safeguard the forest and ensure sustainability of the project.
