Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to bank documents, the project aims to "increase resilience of the climate vulnerable community in flood prone areas of Bangladesh. This will be achieved through four outcomes i.e. (1) Institutions (Implementing Entities) and community groups strengthened capacity on addressing climate change, (2) Protection of homestead from adverse effect of flood, (3) Increased access to safe water and sanitation and (4) Access to flood resilient livelihood.

Under outcome 1, the project will enhance capacity of 10 organizations (IEs) to implement climate change adaptation projects at community level. It will also increase capacity of 90,000beneficiaries in the flood vulnerable areas on climate change vulnerabilities and impacts through class room training, meetings and group exercises. The project will produce and document lessons and share these lessons in different levels of stakeholders. The project will also generate information and knowledge on effective implementation of community based adaptation projects through GIS and result based monitoring system.

Under outcome 2, the project will raise plinth of 45,000 vulnerable people in cluster basis with alluvial sand above flood level in the riverine char land of Brahmaputra and Teesta river. The project will also facilitate the plinth dwellers to cultivate vegetables and plant trees round the year on the raised plinth.

Under outcome 3, the project will install 500 flood resilient shallow tube wells for safe drinking water and 2810 sanitary latrines for hygiene. Necessary awareness sessions on health and hygiene will be conducted in the monthly group meetings of CCAGs.

Under outcome 4,the project will enhance resilience of livelihoods of 45,000 beneficiaries against flood. The project will have both grant and loan financing. GCF will provide grant support whereas PKSF will provide both loan and grant (in kind) support. This is mainly because, the project will be implemented in remote climate vulnerable areas. In many cases, the government waves loan of the vulnerable community particularly due to affected by natural disasters including flood. That means, providing loan to the vulnerable community is very risky investment and difficult to recover the loan. That’s why, the project does not propose loan from GCF."
