Bangladesh

With two-thirds of the country less than 20 feet above sea level and with rapidly growing urban centers, Bangladesh is highly threatened by climate change.  USAID adaptation programs work with national and local stakeholders to better protect vulnerable communities, including the conservation of wetlands and forests, organization of disaster management committees, and building of shelters. Through the EC-LEDS program, USAID is supporting Bangladesh’s commitment to low emissions growth, including through renewable energy development, tree planting and improved forest management, and climate-smart agricultural practices.
