Bangladesh is one of the most climate-vulnerable countries in the world with a population of over 160 million. The country and its people particularly women, children, and young people are at significant risk due to climate-induced disasters. According to the experts, the impacts and vulnerabilities of such climate-induced hazards are greater in Bangladesh due to its geophysical location, the hydrological influence of the monsoons and regional water flow patterns, low-level resilience of the affected people in terms of technical and financial capacity, and lack of proper arrangement and implementation of policy and institutions to address the challenges. Climate change, if not addressed will cause serious environmental, social, and economic crises in the country affecting the food security and livelihood of young people, particularly the marginalized ones, pushing them to migrate to urban areas or move abroad illegally. Action Aid Bangladesh has been working towards addressing climate injustice from local to global level since 2007. Over the years, AA Bangladesh implemented a series of programs and projects across the country. As part of its effort to address the impacts of climate change and to promote climate justice, AAB will work with AVAS to facilitate different actions in Barisal and Patuakhali District.
