Building risk management tools for climate vulnerable communities, Bangladesh.
The project aims to develop climate-resilient fishermen communities to reduce loss and
damage induced by ocean risk along the coastal belt of Bangladesh through
a. Restoration and conservation of coastal nature-based infrastructures,
b. Introduction of risk recovery insurance for the fishermen’s communities and
c. Developing early warning and climate advisories targeting fishermen
Selection of nature-based (blue-green) infrastructure to conserve and restore coastal ecosystem functions, such as Seaweed, Seagrass, and sand-dune vegetation (NyphaFruticans, Mangrove apple).
Climate Risk Insurance (RiSurance) to provide risk recovery support during the leanperiod and also the cyclonic period to refrain fishermen from fishing in sea and river.
The establishment of the Fishing Resilient Information Center (FRIC)
Developing a mobile-friendly app (InfoClim) and dissemination of climate advisories and disaster early warnings to the fishing communities rescue to sea-going fishermen to rescue themselves before cyclones and storm surges.
