Being resilient: Addressing climate change – Evidences on the outcome and learning of Bangladesh Lighthouse Project
This report is an outcome of a research initiated by the Climate Change Unit at CCDB and documents the programmatic interventions, challenges and learnings from the Lighthouse Project, which aims to improve resilience to climate change impacts in coastal areas of Bangladesh. It is a qualitative approach in defining and specifying the degree of risk and resilience of coastal communities that are vulnerable to climate change.
The study finds that people can be motivated and empowered, taking more responsibilities and becoming resilient. It also identifies some key elements of resilience building in communities. One important finding from the assessment is that there is a close relation between socio-economic activities and the environment, including the climate, which leads to the conclusion that any local level intervention or introduction of a new technology needs to be contextualized.
