SC-KOREA Project Feasibility Study

Purpose of the Feasibility Study

The primary purpose of this feasibility study is to obtain reliable information on which the feasibility of the project can be examined and develop a project outline, and an implementation strategy will be created. At the same time, the information generated should serve as a basis for monitoring and evaluating the project activities. Also, the purpose of the study is to assess the viability of the proposed interventions and the following DCED criteria.

  • Relevance: Will the planned project be adequate?
  • Effectiveness: Which project approach is the best way to achieve these objectives?
  • Effectiveness: Which project approach is the best way to achieve these objectives?
  • Impacts: Does the planned project contribute to achieving superior developmental effects?

The findings of this study shall ensure accountability to the donor and communities by demonstrating a well-founded basis of the project design, including thorough contextual analysis with scientific, social, and economic data and information on climate change impacts and situations and integrating professional suggestions, daily-life-based-experiences, and opinions of stakeholders. The processes preceding the feasibility study are expected to increase the project’s effectiveness and ensure that external specialist recommendations are captured and integrated with the proposal design phase through the proposed changes.

Objective of the baseline study

The specific objectives of the feasibility study are below; based on the particular goals, the consultant will develop a research question(s) for each purpose, as they may deem appropriate. The specific objectives of the study are to:

  1. Comprehensive analysis of geographical characters and climate change context assessment in the national and target region; figuring out climate change drivers, the scientific research on climate change for recent 10 to 30 years, and its projection from national to the feasibility study area level (if the information is possible)
  2. Find and analyze existing and previously implemented regulations, policies, plans, Governance structure, and programs on climate change adaptation of the government, other organizations, and community groups not only for the national but also local level, especially in ecologically critical areas, focusing on suggested subdistricts of  Sathkhira district in Bangladesh
  3. Identify the actions taken so far to build climate resilience of the vulnerable communities and conserve nature with local people and institutions in ecologically critical areas, especially for the Sathkhira district in Bangladesh
  4. Identify the scope of work for policy implementation and potential implementing partners in the environmental field and sort out lessons & learned to fill their gaps through SC’s intervention.
  5. Measure and analyze the impacts of climate change on different sectors such as people’s livelihoods, public health, children, and education in suggested subdistricts of Sathkhira District. 
  6. Identify the most critical gaps, problems, risks, and concerns on existing climate change situations and climate change governance system and the system’s gaps in the community regarding Climate Change Adaptation, especially in the Satthkhira district.
  7.  Find out a community-based solution and Adaptation mechanism from the local community 
  8. Generate concrete recommendations to modify the project design in terms of the scope (geographical and content), target groups, and strategy for project implementation.
Methodology of the study
  • Collection, review and analysis of long-term climate and weather data of key climate parameters and disaster data to show the trends of change and impacts on biodiversity, natural resources, water resources, agricultural practices, food security and livelihoods;
