In this edition of the Momentum for Change podcast series, we take a deeper look at a women-centered initiative that helps communities adapt to climate change in Bangladesh.

The award-winning Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction in Bangladesh project seeks to address extreme weather conditions such as cyclones and flooding, as well as the consequence of increased salinity conditions in agriculture.

The initiative, which is implemented by the non-governmental organization ActionAid Bangladesh, brings groups of women together to assess vulnerability to these risks. Then, they identify and implement action plans, such as improved cook stoves that reduce carbon emissions or dams to preserve fresh water from salinization.

To learn more, we spoke to Farah Kabir, ActionAid’s Country Director.
