Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world at risk of climate change. Disasters like cyclone, flooding and tidal surges are becoming more frequent. Anomalistic climate pattern such as irregular rainfall, drought, unusual heat or cold, longer summers and shorter winters are becoming evident due to rising global temperature.
Although disaster response is a regular exercise for Bangladesh, extreme climate events influenced by climate change are continuing to cause loss of lives and economic sufferings. These disasters leave a long-standing impact on the lives and livelihoods of the affected communities.
Bangladesh must continue to develop effective strategies for tackling climate disasters and supporting vulnerable communities through providing a sustainable solution for their social well-being and economic prosperity.
