The project aims to mainstream climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) in community level planning and programming.  The main impact of this initiative will be to improve the resilience of vulnerable community against natural disasters, climate change, climatic variability and extreme weather events.  The targeted vulnerable group includes climate-induced disaster-affected poor families (with special emphasis on women-headed families) living in the exposed and vulnerable hotspots of coastal zones who have very little capacity to cope with extreme weather events and the communities whose livelihoods are solely dependent on harvesting natural resources.  The project will primarily concentrate in four villages of two coastal upazilas of Bangladesh.
