Bangladesh, UNDP launch project for people vulnerable to climate impacts

The Bangladeshi government and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Thursday signed an agreement for the implementation of a project aimed at benefiting hundreds of thousands of people in the country's disaster-prone areas. The 33 million USD project "Enhancing adaptive capacities of coastal communities, especially women, to cope with climate change induced salinity," financed by the Green Climate Fund (GCF), will benefit some 700,00 people from the disaster-prone Satkhira and Khulna districts in southwestern Bangladesh with a focus on women and adolescent girls, UNDP said in a statement.
