Bearing the climate burden how households in Bangladesh are spending too much

Source(s):  International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)

The debate around climate and risk reduction nances has focused on money from national governments and international donors, mostly ignoring contributions from individual households. Using data from Bangladesh, this paper demonstrates that rural households — the direct sufferers of climate change — spend almost US$2 billion on disaster preparedness and response. In absolute terms, this is more than double the government climate and disaster risk reduction spending and over 12 times higher than multilateral international nancing to Bangladesh’s rural population. Measured as share of income, women also spend three times more than men on climate and disaster.
