This paper discusses climate change in Bangladesh, as the country is getting hotter and more humid with erratic rainfall. Bangladesh is associated with having six seasons; however, the distinct features of these seasons are becoming increasingly blurred.
This study on women and girls’ participation in community-based disaster risk management in Bangladesh is part of Plan International’s Inclusive Community Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (ICDRM) project.
The disaster risk reduction (DRR) status report provides a snapshot of the state of DRR in Bangladesh under the four priorities of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. It also highlights progress and challenges associated with ensuring coherence among the key global frameworks at the national level; and makes recommendations for strengthening overall disaster risk management (DRM) governance by government institutions and stakeholders at national and local levels.
