Impacts of climate change severely affect the water security of the communities in the south-west coastal region of Bangladesh. An action research conducted in two selected villages of Khulna in 2018 shed light on specific local water insecurities due to climatic and non-climatic factors, associated consequences on local communities and limitations of current coping strategies. The study also illustrated some solutions adopted by communities to reduce the risks. Among a series of policy briefs under the Panii Jibon project, this policy brief has been formulated to provide recommendations to convert community perceived solutions into actions towards ensuring water security for climate vulnerable communities in coastal Bangladesh.
