Panii Jibon (Water is Life) is a HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation led initiative being implemented in collaboration with its local partners, that aims to address water related threats and vulnerabilities of an already impoverished population living in the disaster-prone coastal areas of Bangladesh. The overall objective of the Panii Jibon project is to build resilience and reduce well-being loss of climate change affected disadvantaged communities, and particularly vulnerable women and youth, in the disaster-prone areas of South West Bangladesh.
To accomplish the above, ICCCAD undertook an action research study in 2018, in selected project sites (Paikgachha Upazila). The study involved conducting a rapid vulnerability assessment to understand the impacts of climate change, particularly on livelihood and water security as well as on overall well-being in the area.
This report provides a synthesis of findings from the assessment and proposes possible ways forward for building resilience of targeted communities. The results of the study would serve to guide capacity building and policy advocacy interventions in the following years of the project (2018-2020).
