Bangladesh, being one of the most vulnerable countries to natural disasters and global climate change, faces different individual and catastrophic shocks creating severe impact on the lives and livelihoods of the marginal segment of the population. In the context of climate change, action research within an experimental design is needed to identify effective institutional and operational arrangements and intervention packages to build adaptive capacities at household and community levels. The basic purpose of this research was to design a comprehensive action research program based on background studies. The study components were:
Component 1: Comprehensive stocktaking analysis of MFI and NGO engagement in disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation ((i) Intervention Stocktaking, (ii) Balance Sheet and Contingency Stocktaking, (iii) Spatial Analysis);
Component 2: Design action research to pilot test interventions for building household adaptive capacity and resilience.
